Welcome to Make It Crochet with Kim Guzman! I hope you will enjoy the site as I share my latest crochet pattern designs with you.
Over the years, I’ve designed and written over 600 patterns. You may have seen some of my crochet patterns already.
Here at Make It Crochet, you’ll find all new crochet patterns, different than what I’ve designed anywhere else.
You may recognize my name as the designer of my most popular pattern of all time. The Sweetheart Ripple Afghan was first published in the Crochet World magazine, February 2009.
Later, I designed and wrote four other patterns to complement it and all five afghans were published in a book called Reversible Ripple Afghans.
For two years, I was the Technique Teacher of Crochet 1-2-3 magazine. Do you remember it?
I am a professional member of CGOA (Crochet Guild of America). At their website, you will find many tools to help you in crochet, whether you are a maker, designer or publisher.
CGOA is open to everyone and there are lots of benefits to being a member. I hope to see you there!
I spent a lot of time over the years in writing books and submitting designs to magazines and other publications. I really enjoyed it and here are some of my favorites.
See my books on Amazon.

I’ve taught two video classes for Annie’s Craft Store. When I was filming the classes, Annie’s did a little question and answer video. You can still see the Meet Kim Guzman video. Isn’t that fun?
I founded CrochetKim.com in 1998 and sold the site to Nicola and Paul Simpson in 2019. You can still find hundreds of my contributor posts there. For three years, I helped my youngest son with his recipe site 24Bite.com. Now that he’s doing most of the heavy lifting there, I’ve decided to start another crochet pattern website after that 3-year break.
Now that you know a little bit about me, I hope to get to know you too! I hope you enjoy this new website and you are just as excited as I am to see it grow.
Please follow me and connect through any of my social media accounts or through my email newsletter.
In the meantime, join me at Make It Crochet anytime!
