    I love your patterns and am anxiously waiting for the Vintage Rose top to match the Vintage Rose cap. I want to make that one for my grand-daughter. She just loves hats, and I know she will love that one with that adorable top to match.

    You are amazing for just one year in business!! Keep those wonderful patterns coming!!

    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:)

    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:)))

    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. Thank you so much, Alla for a wonderful year!

    I have just found your site and think it is great!! I love the free hat pattern that you put on Crochetville. The hat will help me make some cute hats for the homeless children at a homeless shelter that I crochet for. I crochet hats all year long and this is just perfect for all of the little girls. Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us. Congratulations on a great year and hope that you have many more successful ones.

    “Hello, I purchase the fruity patter last month and I have to say that I love it.
    I have been looking at your beautiful patters for a while, if I could I would purchase most of them, but with the economy the way it is I have to stick with one for the moment. I’m glad to see that you are offering coupons to get discounts when purchasing more then one pattern. I’m eager to see your new designs. Happy anniversary”
