Violeta’s creative process is a testament to her free-spirited approach to art. While she occasionally crafts patterns, she predominantly enjoys the spontaneity of freehand crocheting. The journey begins with choosing the animal to be brought to life, followed by a meticulous selection of vibrant yarn colors. As she dives into the creation process, she embraces the unpredictability, allowing the final result to take its own unique form. The only challenge she faces is maintaining consistent yarn thickness, ensuring the integrity of each piece.

The first animal to emerge from Violeta’s scrap yarn venture was a cat. The popularity of these feline companions soared, becoming a staple in many households. One particular cat even embarked on a remarkable journey through Japan, accompanying writer Aurelijus Zykas, who served as the ambassador in Japan. The cat’s adventures were documented in a charming book, capturing the hearts of readers and earning a special place on television.
