Welcome! (with arms open wide). I’m so glad you’re here.
Call me Rose, but on paper it is Bekisu (It’s a long story. Maybe I’ll get around to it someday).
I am a mom to 2 blessed sons, a wife to a great guy and a lover of Jesus.
This blog chronicles my journey into the amazing, endless world of crochet. My plan here is simple- to crochet as much as I can, as long as I can, create patterns that are ‘user friendly’ and special, to inspire you and also be inspired to greatness.
Crochet began for me as a hobby in high school. However, I dropped it as I raced through life looking for the right career. Fast forward to 15 years+ later I’m back to the craft and finding so much joy in it, and decided to share it with you. I tell you, crochet has done great things in my life. It comes as no surprise to me that I’m back to handmade. I have always found joy and contentment in crafts. One time I wanted to be a greeting cards designer, even made some (when I was broke) and sold them. I’ve also dabbled into bead making (still have a soft spot for it).
Some of my other interests are essential oils, teaching, grooming my African textured hair. I’m passionate about getting other females to learn crochet and I’ve been privileged to teach some women in our small community . In my opinion, it’s an endless world of creation and creativity. I also continue to learn as crochet is filled with endless possibilities.
I’ve got so many ideas and experiences to share, both personal and impersonal and I hope you will go on this journey with me as we discover the greatness and many blessings we’ve been loaded with.
When I’m not crocheting, I’m thinking about the next project (really), fine tuning LoopinglyMade, attending an essential oil meeting or tending to my family.
It took me a year to finally decide on the name LoopinglyMade. All the other options I chose were unavailable, so I settled for a word that sounded ‘crochety’ -Loop, turned it around here and there, then when I searched for LoopinglyMade, it was free. Yayy! I grabbed it.
You are very welcome to drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org, follow on Pinterest and Instagram and Join LM mailing list to keep updated on the newest posts and free patterns.
Thank you for visiting LoopinglyMade.
Before I began designing and writing patterns I did not really understand what the fuss was about crochet designers saying people should not use their work in certain ways. But now, I know better. A LOT goes into creating all this free content you see here. And I respect that!

It is true that each individual has a right to their opinion. It is also true about the saying “If you have nothing good to say (about someone) then don’t say it”. I definitely will love to read your comments/suggestions. So, please be mindful of your language. No one loves spam (maybe except the spammers), so any such comment will be deleted.
