Ana Morais Soares is a Portuguese crochet designer and a lifetime creative. She took the first steps in crochet at the age of eight, guided by her grandmother. Adolescence was devoted to knitting, but the crochet bug was always there. After a publisher and a public relations career, crafts won her full attention. You can find her crocheted life under Menta & Pimenta Crafts name on Facebook, on her personal Instagram account, or on her blog. You can get more of her patterns on Ravelry or Etsy. Ana lives in Cascais, near the sea, with her husband, two sons, and five cats.
