Announcement    Hi and welcome to my Crocheted by Kirby etsy store.
I hand crochet hoods and fingerless gloves inspired by geek/sci-fi/horror/comic fandoms. I watch a ton of tv/movies to try to keep my hookin’ current.

I have been crocheting since I was in high school and over the years I have designed some amazing hats, hoods, and fingerless gloves. Everything I crochet come straight out of my head. I can not read a pattern to save my life and often stair at a few pictures of the actual animal, fruit/vegetable, or superhero I am basing a hat/hood on and it will just come to me.

But because of this strangely wonderful gift each one of my hats, hoods, and other crocheted goodness are all one of a kind like the people wearing them. Yes two hats like two people may look similar but they are not exactly the same.

After that I was so inspired to help all shapes and sizes of people have their very own piece of wearable art.

Thank you and happy shopping!

I make wearable art for people all shapes and sizes!

It all started with my grandmother..... She was an amazing woman. She could crochet, knit, and sew. I wanted to be just like her. She tried for years to teach me. First knitting; that didn't go over well (I can't handle the two sticks). Then crocheting; I didn't take to it right away (I'm left handed and she was right). Finally sewing; that I took to fast.
It wasn't until the arthritis and the old age really started to hinder my grandmother's ability to create that my crocheting gift really developed. It was like I was picking up where she left off.
One day I got it in my head that I was going to give crocheting another try. I got one of those books from JoAnn's and none of the institutions made any sense (I'm dyslexic so some times I have issue) but the pictures did (make sense). I stared at those three pictures until a light bulb went off. It all clicked and I could crochet.
It was not perfect but over time with more and more practice I got better and better.
I never did learn how to read a pattern so I figure out everything on my own and make (what others have said) some of the most amazing things.
Still to this day I use my grandmother's hooks. I even have my favorite hook (a boye N hook) tattooed on my arm of my crocheting hand.

    I am one of the luckiest girls ever that I have such a supportive husband. He will stand in what feels like endless craft store lines with me, model my hats or shirts when I need to see them on a person, and so much more.
