The Animator's Wife first became interested in Middle Eastern dance in 2003. Contrary to popular belief, the dance is not a "dance of seduction," but rather a dance women did (and continue to do) to celebrate one another, and through belly dance The Animator's Wife has found a wonderfully supportive community of women from all faiths and walks of life. As such, she sought to merge her love of the dance with her other famous love for crochet, and Crochet Kitten began designing patterns for the belly dancer.
Our first belly dance design was our ever popular Josephine Tribal Set, but we are continually adding to our design collection as belly dance fashion evolves, so be sure to subscribe to our mailing list for updates so you never miss a thing! You may also buy with confidence, as we offer full pattern support via email for all of our crochet patterns. Enjoy!
