Announcement   My name is Jan and I live in Manchester 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, I am always open to any suggestions as to different colours, designs and sizes. I can't always guarantee the same price as it depends on what yarn is available at the time or your order. Also larger sizes will cost more as they take more yarn.

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 of the same name if you want to make any enquiries. I also have a Youtube channel in the same name.

Thank you for visiting my shop

About

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.
