I saw your site listed on a group to which I belong, Crochet Partners, and I checked it out, as I always look at their referrals.  When I saw your Sea Shells Scarf, which looked so familiar. I recognized it immediately as a scarf which I had recently seen. I knew in real life that it was a stunning piece and I knew I had seen in done in a pale to mid shade of blue. It then came to me that I was in line at Starbucks in Ponte Vedra, Florida (south of Jacksonville but north of St Augustine) yesterday. The weather was really nice & warm so most people in the very long line wore shorts. The woman in front of me, though wore a light blue sweat suit, carried an incredible large and lovely  blue handbag. She also wore this gorgeous blue scarf….yours……she looked stunning. I know she was from Europe as she and her companion were speaking  Italian and her clothing was well made with that European style. Anyhow, that scarf made the outfit and everyone in the long line was admiring her.
- Karen Gaskell, Beautiful scarves. Interesting story

I am still breathlessly awaiting a book series based on your designs!! They are all wonderful, and yet each item has an element of simplicity that can be used in other areas!! Very excited about your work.
- Sharon Curtis

Thank You so much for posting these wonderful- cute as a bug patterns! Finally some REALLY cute crochet patterns for real life wear. My girlies and myself LOVE to wear crochet but almost everything you find is soooo outdated. My 7yr olds head is just about to pop off with excitment because her summer outfits are going to be so cool…
- Jennifer in Missouri

Wow. I just want to let those who haven´t bought patterns here before know that they are absolutely worth every penny. I just bought my first patterns from Alla and they were waiting for me in my email box about an hour later. And not only are they gorgeous but also extremely well written and have lots of pictures and explanations. Plus how many pattern designers can you contact directly if you need any help;)And on top of being talented, she is also very nice and helpful. Now with all these new beautiful patterns my fingers are just itching to get started:)
Thank you so much Alla
I´ll be looking forward to seeing what pretty things you´ll be creating in the future.
One very happy customer:)))
- Helga

Alla, I am truly amazed by your creativity! I haven’t seen such beautiful designs in years. It is so wonderful that you share your gift with others. You have inspired me to move on to more challenging projects. I look forward to seeing your new masterpieces in the future. Again, Thank you for sharing!
- Joyce

Спасибо Вам огромное за переворот в моем сознании. Вязать я раньше не очень любила, так, по необходимости. Но увидев Ваши работы, просто влюбилась практически в каждую модельку. Уже запаслась пряжей, и надеюсь к лету моя принцесса будет щеголять в Ваших моделях.
- Irina

In 2010 I found your website by doing a google search for crochet scarf patterns. In my 35 years of crocheting never have I seen the creativity that your patterns have. I love the way you draw the pattern. I crocheted 16 of your scarf patterns this year and gave them to my co-workers. I usually crochet scarves all year as a stress reliever, then give the scarves to homeless shelters. I am excited to begin my stress therapy :)
- Dawn

I have just discovered your wonderful talent. You are incredible!!! You are extremely inspiring. Thank you so much.
- Claudette

I would like to compliment you, on your precise, complete and thorughly understandable directions. i do believe these are the nicest pattern directions and the most complete i have ever seen. Bravo..and ty..
- Jenniferbeth

I just started to crochet again after many years and found your website recently. I am still a novice but your designs are really encouraging me to learn more and do more. They are beautiful and inspiring. Usually when I think of crochet I think of the old not-so-attractive looking patterns but now I know that up to date clothing, etc. can be made. Much thanks and appreciation.
- Connie Caban

I think the biggest strength of your design sense is that your designs would look right at home in chic urban boutiques!
- MK Carroll

Canada calling!

I’m Canadian born, of Belorussian parentage, and am most “awed” by the needlework talents of Russian women, especially your creative crochet designs. You make me think in new directions and outside the box – THANK YOU!!!

As someone who can barely crochet things in straight lines (like scarves), I am amazed at everything on your site! One day, I will learn more than one stitch/pattern/technique! ;)
- Kelly

Everything on here is absolutely top quality! Here you are, giving away GORGEOUS patterns for free! Thank you thank you thank you! I’ve been trying to write out patterns for items I’ve made and am having a tough time with it! I envy your talent! If I could give you 10 extra hours a day, I would – just so I could see more of what you can do! I can’t wait to finish up some of my projects so I can buy your lacey coat pattern!!!

I’m a self taught crocheter and just love your designs – beautiful and elegant. The colors you use are always so bright and lovely.
- Judy Riddell

OMG! I stumbled upon your site and can’t believe my eyes! Such beautiful patterns and thorough instructions. Though I had seen your pattern for Sunny Skies Hat and Coat set in CROCHET!, no time to focus on it due to crocheting fingers working on Holiday gifts. Now, I can relax and continue to find new and beautiful new patterns for my “grand girls”. Thank you for such a wonderful site.
- Carol Boljevic

I absolutely LOVE all your patterns! They are not only beautiful, but they are also very well written!! Keep up the amazing work :-)

I love your designs! They are some of the most creative I have ever seen. If I am going to spend hours of my precious time on a project i want it to be worth the time and your patterns are.
- Jeanie Davis

I just finished ‘The Friday Night Knitting Club,’ and I can just imagine a group of ladies sitting around your shop making something beautiful from yarn. Your patterns always inspire me to try harder on my own work.
- Lynn

The first time I saw your designs I fell madly in love! Thanks for all the great ideas. I have a 10-year-old granddaughter, and many of your projects are perfect for her (she’s tiny)
- Loretta Hucks

I really love your patterns. You are very talent. And my girls will enjoy the new wearables. Thanks to you for the beautiful, funny for girls and babys.
- Celinda Vazquez

You’re patterns are original and fill a gap in the pattern world. Looking forward to many more unique, stylish patterns.
- Montserrat

Your patterns are absolutly gorgeous. I´m so glad I found your page. When I have been looking for cute crochet patterns, I´ve always found a lot for babies and toddlers. It can be difficult to find pretty patterns for girls over 4 or 5 years old. So your page is an absolute treasure. I can´t wait to see what more you´ll be adding in the future:)
- Helga

I made the splash pattern and the instructions were so clear and simple. It was so much fun to crochet! I received so many compliments on it as it was in progress. My granddaughter called when she got it in the mail. She said she loved it, and that it meant so much to her – she is 7. I was so touched by her enthusiasm and expression of love that words cannot explain how joyful I felt. I am sure all your fans join you in your celebration, and I would just like to let you know that if you ever publish a book, I’ll have it on pre-order the second I hear the news. Very few people have your talent, and I am grateful you share it with those of us who cannot design.
- Sharon

What an eye for color, and what a gift you have for design. Congratulations in creating some of the yummiest eye-candy a crocheting grandmother could ever hope for!

Your hats are ‘par excellence’! Your ability to create quality, by using simplicity, is very rare to find, and easily recognized as superior!

You have the ability to know that “How can something be so pretty and so simple?” because that, in itself, is the beauty.

- LadyHooker

without a doubt, you are the best when it comes to crocheting, your colors go together very well, I have crocheted for a long time, my mother taught me. God rest her. But I have never seen anything that looks as good as your does. I think my colors come from the old old school of putting colors together. You do a wonderful job. I am anxious for my sister to see your site. Keep it up, you are an inspiration when it comes to crocheting. Thank you for having this site.

- D. Garrett

I just had to write to you to let you know that I absolutely love all of your designs – they are gorgeous! I’ve made several versions of your free garden party hat for my daughter, and she loves them. I’m looking forward to making some of your other patterns – the tops in particular – for her. So many gorgeous things to choose from; I can’t decide :-)
- Heather

I’ve been crocheting since last year.  Making hats and baby things. I saw this pattern while randomly searching the web. I usually use free patterns but purchased this one to make for my 12 year old granddaughter. It came out as more a size 12, so I finished it for me. Wore it Wednesday. I got so many compliments from the first person who saw it and the woman at Dillard’s who asked me if I could make 300 by Christmas to sell at Dillard’s. Thank you.
- Mary

    I have been watching your website for about 2 years now and I am always so amazed and impressed every time I look. I have been crocheting around 20 years now and could never begin to produce the quantity of such beautiful and creative work as you do. You are such an inspiration and I thank you for sharing your techniques and advice. You are by far the best in the business.

    Hello Alla
    I found your web page few minutes ago. Your designs are very pretty. I would like to try making one of your hats.
    I am wondering how to care for them. I am assuming they cannot be washed? Did you use starch to keep them looking firm?
    Thank you
