Irish Hooks & Yarn is the realization of a dream to hand-crochet items that will be special to the giver and the receiver of the item. My passion for crocheting began after my first daughter was born. My mother taught me the basics and before long I had mastered some of the fine points. It’s wonderful to now be able to showcase my hand-crocheted items on Etsy.

Irish Hooks & Yarn offers a variety of hand-crochet items, but the raglan sweater for children is still my traditional favorite. My children, nieces and nephews called these “Name Sweaters” as their names were crossed stitched on the pocket of the crocheted hoodie.

Today, the “Name Sweater” may be a misnomer as it is usually personalized with the child’s initials, favorite college colors and name, or the most popular version, the Paddy Green and Aran sweater with IRISH! There are many possibilities so email me to discuss custom orders and the smallest size (12 months) zippers up the back!

Thanks to a number of hockey fans, the Hockey Skate booties are a very popular item in the Irish Hooks & Yarn shop. The design is partly original (the blade) and partly from a commercial pattern. I am retired Hockey Mom … although my son continues to play in men’s leagues and my daughter coaches at a prep school and plays on a women's team. I fashioned the blade after their hockey skates and thanks to my Esty customers I can’t seem to make them fast enough!
