About the Creator

Crafting Dreams and Spreading Joy: A Journey of Yarn and Passion!

Who is She?

Crafty Turtle is a labor of love created by a passionate mother of two, who, while serving full-time as an Engineer Officer in the U.S. Army, discovered her love for crochet and circular knitting. 

Shai is originally from northern California, but has lived in 17 different places in the past 20 years of her career in the military.


Fueled by a desire to help others unleash their creativity and experience the satisfaction of crafting something beautiful and handmade, Crafty Turtle offers a wealth of tutorials, patterns, and inspiration to guide and inspire fellow craft enthusiasts on their unique creative journeys.


Born and raised in California, our compassionate creator has traveled far and wide throughout her military career. Along the way, she learned the art of crochet from her mother as a child, but it wasn’t until she was expecting her first child in 2019 that her passion for crochet rekindled. Since then, she has been dedicated to sharing her love for crochet and circular knitting, helping individuals from all walks of life learn and create their own special crochet items.

Crafty Turtle is a haven for those who yearn to make something meaningful with their own two hands. 

With a mission to empower and uplift fellow crafters, I believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to experience the joy of crafting. That’s why I created Crafty Turtle, to provide a wide range of tutorials and patterns, catering to all skill levels and interests.

From cozy baby blankets to stylish accessories and everything in between, my tutorials offer detailed step-by-step guidance, ensuring that you can create beautiful and fun crochet items with confidence.
