WELCOME!

Hiya, my name is Kunbi, the maker behind Handmade by Kunbi.

I started knitting and crocheting at the age of 8 and although I abandoned the craft from when I was a teenager until well into my 30s, I pretty much hit the ground running when I decided to pick up my knitting needles and crochet hooks again. I haven’t looked back since. Handmade by Kunbi was born when I started getting custom orders and subsequently started writing patterns.

I’m a medical writer during the day, a wife and mummy to a very energetic six year old going on sixteen and a baby girl born in June 2018. I enjoy writing and I have authored a few blogs during different seasons in my life.

I’m a coffee lover whoΒ loves to read, listen to music, write worship songs inspired by a heart filled with awe and wonder for God, and hang out with my family. I enjoy laughing all the laughs and making people laugh.

To find out more about Handmade by Kunbi, head on over to the About section. I look forward to connecting with you πŸ™‚

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Blessings,

🌟 Perfection is not the goal, growth is πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½. So, keep learning and keep growing.

C2C + yarn cake = always a glorious union. Working c2c is mindless crocheting for me, which I am loving right now. 

I’m crocheting a blanket for my living room. Not sure how big I want it but the beauty of c2c is that it’ll be easy for me to decide how big before I start decreasing πŸ™ŒπŸ½.

The yarn 🧢 is scrumptious and lush to work with 😍😍. It’s called Hurricane and I purchased it from @hobbii_yarn.

Do you crochet c2c?
