Welcome to Whistle and Ivy! Here you will find free crochet patterns, creative inspiration and simple ideas!

Hello! Nice to see you! I’m Bethany, a blogger, a crocheter, a writer, a wife, a mama, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  
Want to know more about me? Click here.

I started Whistle and Ivy back in 2012 when I was struggling with my first baby and life as a stay-at-home mom. What I thought was just the “baby-blues” turned out to be much more serious.  I was able to get help with the support of my family, and find healing with my writing! Whistle and Ivy created (and still creates!) a place where I could exist outside of diapers and laundry, and connect with people who share my passions. I truly hope you can find something that brings you happiness here. 

I would love to connect with you! Along with my blog, I also run an online crochet community. Our Crochet Club is made up of passionate crocheters and I would love for you to join us! Find us on Facebook

If you would like to offer additional support for future free crochet patterns, please consider sharing my content on your social media or email. This gets my patterns to more people, which means I can write even MORE patterns.
