Announcement   Welcome to Hooray Crochet! I'm so happy you're here.

I make beaded stitch markers for knitting and crochet and original crochet patterns. My philosophy is simple: I don't sell anything I wouldn't wear, use, or give as a gift--in fact, I originally designed most of the items in this shop as gifts for family and friends (and myself!). I love everything I make, and I hope you do too. :)

If you have any questions at all, please ask! And do check out my shop policies for more info on everything.

Beautiful bag, easy to follow pattern! I added a round of reverse single crochet to the top for an added finish 😊

About

Hooray crochet, and hooray for everything else, too!

I love making things for the sake of making things--it's as much about the process as it is about the finished product. I enjoy planning projects--picking colors and fibers, gathering supplies, working through problems and hiccups, sketching it out. The moment of anticipation right before I sit down to actually start something can't be beat.

(This may also be why I can't stop finding new crafts I want to learn. The lure of new tools, new supplies, and a new world of things to make is nearly irresistible. Knitting, sewing, tatting, and crewel embroidery are just some of the skills I intend to add to my repertoire.)

Of course, the downside to this sort of process-orientated creating is that I end up with more scarves that I could possibly wear, or a variety of hats even though I don't wear them, or an afghan that's perfect for the baby I don't have. Sure, I can inflict my creations on friends and family (and believe me, I have), but eventually, I decided it was time to send them farther out into the world. And that's where the Hooray Crochet adventure was born.

No matter what I'm making, there are a few qualities I think will always influence my work: I want to have fun, and I want the people who see my work to know I'm having fun. I want other people to enjoy it as much as I do. I will always love bright colors and beautiful textures. I'm endlessly inspired by traditional forms and materials and the myriad ways they can be interpreted. I will never say no to a good granny square...except in clothing. (Sorry, granny square clothing.)

Crochet as a craft has so much potential that's only barely been tapped. I can't wait to see what will emerge and I love being able to participate in the exploration.

    I am a twenty-something crocheter, sharing my first apartment with a husband, some cats, and a lot of yarn. By day, I work behind-the-scenes at an art museum; by night, I make everything I possibly can, which is never enough.

When I was eighteen, I learned to crochet for the sole purpose of making scarves. (I love scarves.) I puttered along, happily making nothing but scarves for two years, and then I embarked on something far more ambitious: a monstrously huge four-color ripple afghan. It only took a year to finish!

Eventually, I decided I'd enjoy crochet a lot more if I learned to do things properly. So I sat down and taught myself everything I'd been in too much of a hurry to learn before: slip stitches, increases and decreases, working in the round, proper color changes, the works. Since then, I've also experimented in amigurumi, filet crochet, and thread crochet (and even completed a few more afghans).

Now I'm learning to embroider and enjoying it immensely. Growing up, I LOVED to draw (still do), and that's really just what embroidery is: drawing with a needle and beautifully-colored thread. (And, hey, the thread's a lot cheaper than my yarn habit!)

I chose my shop name, hooray crochet, because it expresses how I feel when I pick up a yarn and hook (or any other project), and because it's how I hope you'll feel when you open a package from me. I really just love making things, and I want to share them with everyone I can.

Payment
I accept payments via Etsy's direct checkout, Paypal, and Etsy Gift Certificates.

Customers located in Maryland will be charged Maryland sales tax (6%).
Shipping
I ship several times a week, via USPS first class or priority mail, and I'll alert you as soon as I ship your order. If you'd like it faster than that, or via a different carrier, let me know and I'll adjust your invoice with the new shipping price. Same goes if you'd like me to insure your package--let me know and I'll update the invoice to reflect the new cost.

Custom or made to order items may require up to ten business days for production before shipping. Ready-to-ship items will be mailed within two business days of purchase. PDF patterns are now available for direct download and will be available to download directly from Etsy immediately upon payment. If you have trouble with direct download, let me know and I can email you the pattern instead.

If your PayPal address is different from your Etsy address, please let me know in the notes to seller which you'd like me to use. If in doubt, I'll use the PayPal address.

I pack everything neatly and securely, and I use recycled or recyclable packing material wherever possible. Generally speaking, I can't take responsibility for items damaged in transit, but if something arrives with a problem, let me know and we will work something out.
Refunds and Exchanges
I don't sell anything in my shop that I wouldn't want to wear, use, or give as a gift, and I think I set my standards pretty high. However, if you're not happy with your purchase for whatever reason, convo me and we'll work something out. I want you to be as happy with your item as I am!

Due to the nature of electronic files, pdf patterns cannot be returned or refunded after payment.
Additional policies and FAQs
See something in my sold items that you like? Love the design of something, but want it in a different color or fiber (purple instead of gray, acrylic instead of wool)? Send me a convo and I'll be happy to whip it up for you.

Need your item gift-wrapped? Let me know in the notes to seller and I'll make it happen, free of charge! If you're purchasing an item as a gift, I'm happy to ship it directly to the lucky recipient, and if you'd like to include a message, let me know.

Also, please note that because of differences in computer monitors, I can't guarantee that your item will be the exact color it appeared on-screen.
