About ThoresbyCottage

Sales 7,295
On Etsy since 2016

Hi everyone! I’m Caitie, the maker, author and designer who runs the blog and online shop Thoresby Cottage. I live in the beautiful city of Cape Town, South Africa with my husband and children.

I’ve always been a lover of crafting and making and was so blessed to grow up in a home where there was always a new project on the go. I learned to crochet when I was about nine years old, but I didn’t pick up my hooks again until 2016 just before my son was born and what a wild ride it’s been since then!

With a background in Science and Zoology, much of the inspiration for my whimsical amigurumi and home décor is drawn from the colors and shapes found in nature. I am
fuelled by my faith and do most of my designing and making armed with a cup of tea (and often a biscuit).

I have lots of resources on my website (, including free patterns, tutorials and product reviews.

Frequently asked questions

Do you sell the finished crochet items?

Unfortunately I do not (otherwise I wouldn't have time to write gorgeous new patterns!). I do have a few crocheters in various parts of the world who may be able to crochet an item for you. Please contact me to find out more. You are also welcome to purchase a pattern to pass on to someone who does crochet who can make the item for you

My friend/family member just loves the item I made from your pattern. Can I give a copy of the pattern to them?

Please don't do that as only the person who purchased the pattern has the right to use it. Distributing a copy of the pattern violates the Terms of Use for the pattern and is considered theft. f your friend or family member is interested in creating that same piece, please direct them to to purchase their own copy of the pattern.
