I asked for this item to be made custom (black with red Mohawk) so it took a little longer but it was well worth the wait. I am involved in an animal rescue and we are always on the lookout for anything that can make our fur babies stand out in their profile photos and this item is not only well tolerated by the cats and well made, but also just plain adorable! I am very impressed!

About

Freeform Style

I started crocheting 9 years ago when I first bought a hook for keeping my now-defunct dreadlocks tidy (it came with a 'learn to crochet' book). I started out with amigirumi and granny squares, and picked up knitting a few years later.

With crochet, I learned that my spacial skills are better than previously imagined. Many people have sent me photos or 3-D items and asked if I could make one. As it turns out, YES! From amigurimi birthday cakes & sushi, to embellished head pieces, I enjoy the challenge of creating 'something from nothing' using only my yarn & hook!

I've found so many creative uses for crochet that I've never looked back. I especially love the three-dimensional versatility and spontaneity of yarn and hook - giving birth to my free form style.

I use the freeform crochet technique of 'scrumbling,'or 'painting with yarn' popularized in the 1970s by Sylvia Cosh & James Walters. Individual pieces are made using a variety of stitches, motifs, and textures, and then stitched together like patchwork. (check out http://www.crochet.nu/scjwc/ for more info on this fascinating method/movement)

As a cat lover & vegan, an interesting development in 2009 was the creation of my 'cat hat' hat design - which has become a smashing success! It can also be made to fit small dogs. All proceeds go to pay for the vet bills of one of my fur kids, Lumpy. He has his own facebook page at /www.facebook.com/pages/Kitty-Cat-Hats

My shop & style doesn't necessarily fit into the cookie cutter marketing scheme of Etsy, but I think you will appreciate now why it is called Radical Fringe :) Enjoy!!

All my art is 100% animal cruelty-free!

    I've always been a 'free spirit' and my crochet art is no exception! I let the colors and textures guide me to create unique freeform pieces that are truly one-of a kind.
