Urtban Gypsy Crochet

I started my shop a couple of years ago, after I retired, originally for making baby crochet. Since then I have evolved into ladies wear as well as the baby wear. My first love is retro crochet using designs from my vast collection of vintage patterns and books that I have been buying since I was a teenager. My style is bright colours and retro including granny squares but I realise that not everyone likes that style so I vary my things for sale.

I also like many of the modern patterns especally the loose designs that are so versatile.

I love to crochet and Ihope that you love the designs that I choose to make. I am approachable if there is something specific that you would like. I don't make afghans or fine lace mats but apart from that I am open to suggestions.

    I have been crocheting since I was a girl. I love to design and use vintage patterns as well as the new patterns and designs. After retiring I started my Etsy shop to share my love of crochet with others. I hope that you like my designs.
