Buy Crochet Throws & Blankets, Handmade in Devon

Handmade Crochet Throws and Blankets made by Sue of yay retro in Totnes, South Devon

Hi there, I'm Sue who runs yay retro! I make and sell handmade crocheted items.  One of my most popular items are my throws and crochet blankets.


Often I create unique crochet throws using my own designs, like the retro spot throw above.

Because I love crocheting so much, I add different designs to my website most weeks, with colour themes and designs varying regularly. I always try to use colours that are in fashion, keeping a constant check on interior design trends.  This means you are sure to find a throw that suits your home or that of a friend. 

My new offset granny square designs with asymmetric stripes.

I have been knitting and crocheting for over 30 years and also hold a Fine Art degree from The Winchester School of Art. I think that this background in the arts adds a little *something* to all of the crochet I make and sell. What do you think? Why not take a look at everything I've made, including blankets and throws I've sold to date. 

This blanket has the look and feel of the 1950s and early 60s., due to the colours chosen.

With the resurgence of Flower Power and Vintage styling, crochet is currently enjoying a massive boom in popularity. I always aim to have blankets available for those of you who love midcentury design. A well made crochet throw can add colour and texture to your home and is sure to attract lots of attention. I also make totally unique and unusual pattern and colour combinations...

Completely unique, one-off crochet blankets, which are designed as I make them....

If you like something it's worth snapping up as I probably won't ever make another the same! As I mentioned above, I create many crochet blanket designs out of my head, making pattern and colour decisions as I go along. This means that you would never find another the same anywhere. If you adore having lovingly made items in your home, which are unlike anything you can buy anywhere else, then yay retro is for you.  You can even commission me to make something just for you. Simply get in touch. Pop in to yay retro now to see the huge range of crochet blankets and throws available to buy right now. - all hand made by myself in Totnes, Devon.
