Hello!! My name is Abby, and I am the amigurumi designer behind Ollie + Holly. In late 2016, I quit my cooking job to start something of my own that would challenge me, allow me to be creative, and make me happy. In 2018, I discovered the art of amigurumi and fell in love.
I learned to make amigurumi through free patterns, so in early 2019, I decided to start a blog full of free patterns to help beginners out!
To make things easier for people who are new to crochet, I also started creating YouTube tutorials to help more people learn the art of amigurumi. Despite how time consuming it is to make videos, I love it! It’s so rewarding to know that my videos have helped so many beginners discover amigurumi.
You’ll notice that my amigurumi style is a little all over the place. I’m a bit of a dabbler, so I like to try different things out! My amigurumi creations are inspired by many things, but my main influences are food, anime, general pop culture, and Ollie.
