About Me

Hi! My name is Shari and I am the crochet artist behind With a Shari on top. Although I find myself favoring crochet, I also enjoy knitting, sewing, felting and experimenting with other crafts as well.

I first taught myself to crochet about five years ago when I was pregnant with my first child (that’s Ari, she’s 5 and a half now). Initially I enjoyed crocheting mostly hats (infant sized, of course), but quickly learned new skills and began working up different amigurumi patterns, booties of all sorts, etc., etc. Once I felt confident enough with my work I started up an Etsy shop where I mostly sold custom work. After a few years of successfully crocheting custom orders  I found out I was pregnant again (with my adorable 10-month-old son, Sylvan) and I then decided to spend less time on custom orders and more time with designing my own patterns. I can’t wait to write up fun, new patterns to share here on my blog.

I am a very creative person who has a strong passion for kindness and spreading love. I hope my patterns and other blog posts will be enjoyed by other fiber fanatics around the world.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by to read a little about me. I hope you enjoy my work and find my patterns and experiences helpful.
