Learn How to Crochet for Beginners: Meet Aimee the Giraffe

 Always wanted to learn how to crochet but not sure where to get started? Then meet Aimee – this cuddly giraffe is the star of our most popular crochet kit for beginners. She is designed for complete beginners to make - even if you’ve never picked up a crochet hook before.

Wee Woolly Wonderfuls was born from our founder, Lisa Dobbs wanting to learn how to crochet but finding it difficult. She wanted a kit to help make it easier and when she couldn’t find what she was looking for, decided to create them herself.

The Arthur & Betsy Bunny Crochet Kit was the first one Lisa designed and produced. Aimee the Giraffe wasn't far behind - she was designed to be a mascot of Aim Higher - a local autism charity in the UK.
