On the Web



Welcome to Crochet Cabana! Sharing a love of crochet since 1997.
New to the site? Click here for important information.

Crochet Cabana is the brainchild of Sandie Petit--that’s me!--an avid crocheter who is passionate about the craft. I am a CYCA Certified Crochet Teacher and member of CGOA. The site was started to share my interest with others in October 1997, and has grown since then to become a great resource for crocheters all over the web. If you’re new to the craft, you’ll find lots of tutorials and easy patterns to get you started. If you already love it, you’ll find plenty of information here to help you expand your skillset with specialty stitches and more advanced techniques, as well as patterns, resources, and charity information that can be useful to both newbies and seasoned crocheters alike.

Crochet Cabana celebrated 15 years on the web with a complete site overhaul in 2012. My deepest gratitude to my daughter Kate who did the bulk of the work on this overhaul. My thanks also to my husband who is my go-to tech support and was a great help in the upload process of the new site. Thanks also to my son-in-law who is a great text editor. Without these folks, you would not be seeing this fabulous new look and the additional material.
