Welcome! I'm Lauren, the human behind Manatee Squares. I live in Gravesend with my husband, and our two lurchers Wally & Romy.
I started crocheting in 2016 having lost all patience with knitting. Like many others, lockdown 2020 had me crafting more than ever and I decided to try my hand at writing my own patterns.
I started to create pieces which were fun and interesting to work on, while being super wearable and versatile. All my patterns are graded for at least 9 sizes and include loads of notes for customising your piece to be just right for you.
Thanks for being here, tagging along on this journey with me.
