About

out of this world crochet

Welcome to Of Mars!

Here you will find a collection of crocheted creations and patterns made by me, Hannah Martin.

Most of my work is completely one of a kind making each piece unique to the owner. All creations in my shop are my own original designs hand stitched by me for you. From my heart to your hands <3
This is a one woman show! I do everything from creating the pieces, photographing, designing, customer service, packing, shipping, social media, running the online shop, and vending. I do not outsource anything in my creation process -- everything is made by me.


I list new creations periodically -- usually at least once every 2 weeks. I usually will post on my instagram or Facebook page when I release new items. Follow me on social media for updates

WHAT IS FREEFORM CROCHET?

Freeform crochet is crocheting without the use of patterns to create a one of a kind, unique item that cannot be replicated. Freeform involves crocheting in an organic, free flowing style -- something beyond rows and rounds. My particular style of freeform involves creating several motifs - both large and small sizes - and piecing them together like a fiber art puzzle. Freeform crochet allows you to express your creativity and originality in a way beyond traditional crocheting. One of my favorite aspects of freeform is it's ability to create movement within a piece -- almost like painting with yarn


THE HISTORY

I first taught myself how to crochet in winter of 2007. I wasn't very good, but after crocheting off and on for several years I finally got the hang of it in 2011.
I opened this shop in fall of 2012 as a means to fund my growing yarn addiction and as a way to find homes for some of the new creations I was making. I started out making a lot of simple hoods, crop tops, hats, and headbands... then I found my true niche: freeform
I started my freeform crochet journey in 2013. I was actually so disappointed with my first freeform crochet piece I didn't try it again for another 4 months! After a few more attempts I was completely hooked! I love being able to watch how each item grows and develops as pieces are added to it. Making all of this is truly my passion and I feel fortunate to be able to make it and share it with you all.

In addition to crocheting I also sew, dye, spin yarn, write patterns, and teach private crochet lessons.
I am currently based in Pisgah Forest, right outside of Asheville, NC.

Care instructions

I recommend hand-washing all crochet items in COLD water and laying flat to dry.

Washing your hand-dyed or wool items in hot water or in the washing machine may cause color bleeding or felting - Please care for your items appropriately!!

Custom and personalized orders

Custom orders are available on a case-by-case basis. Please contact me with your ideas for more information.

Sizing for clothing items are generally listed on each individual item listing. Customized sizing is available for custom orders.

My hats and hoods are, for the most part, one size fits all. If you have any questions about how an item might fit you please feel free to contact me.
