Urban Gypsy Crochet

Top shop for gifts.

A buyer bought a gift from this shop and gave it a 5-star review!

Announcement    My name is Jan and I live in Fleetwood in the North of England. I have many years of crochet and knitting experience having had three family yarn shops working along side my parents and then by myself until a few years ago. I am now retired and so my passion for crochet has become more important in my life.

My first love is retro crochet and have a huge selection of patterns that I work from but I have recently become a fan of the modern designs too. I crochet what I love and hopefully that you will love also.

I don't like to stick with one design hence the variety of crochet ( and knit) that I put into my Etsy shop. I am a plus sized lady so a lot of my work is flattering for the larger sizes but that doesn't mean that I don't include other sizes as well.

Clothing and accessories are my normal range whether it be baby, child, or adult. I love to experiment with designs and this is reflected in a lot of my one off designs. I love shawls and ponchos as they cover all seasons. At this moment in time I am thinking of Summer designs for the shop.

Please feel free to contact me either on Etsy or my Facebook page Urban Gypsy Crochet if you want to make any enquiries. I also have a Youtube channel as Jan Carruthers Urban Gypsy Crochet.

Thank you for visiting my shop

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.
