I've just completed crocheting this cute light weight summer jacket. Crocheted in cream, lime green and fuchsia, it has a button tab neckline and a big watermelon motif pocket - this has a matching button to close. Neat, and stylish this can be dressed up or down with a dress or t shirt and jeans. You can find out more about this cute cardi here.
This is the amazing 'Square Deal Sweater' pattern crocheted with Super soft Aran yarn.

It features detailed bell sleeves and a fantastic psychedelic pattern front and back! Find out more and buy this retro styled handmade jumper here
Recently a friend gave me a Golden Hands crochet book from 1974, inside was an amazing pattern for a crocheted beach wrap.
This pattern features a loose openwork design of an array of stitches in rainbow colours to create a loose fitting jacket, ideal for summer or as a coverall in winter. I've shorted the bell sleeves to just below the elbow, making it an easier wear when working or going about your daily bits and bobs. I've had two customers ask me for these in just a week and I think you can see why.
Recently I have begun making crocheted clothing and this has been a very popular idea with yay retro customers. This is the Blooming Bomber Jacket pattern, designed by Katie Jones Knits. It's made from super soft Aran yarn and features crazy flower power pockets! With all the colours of the rainbow teamed up with a black base this striking jacket looks amazing on. It's a boxy unfitted shape meaning it suits a wide range of body shapes and sizes - ideal when making clothing to suit everyone. For a limited time, I can take special order requests for these jackets though would prefer each jacket I make to be of a different colour to keep it interesting for me. Please get in touch to discuss your ideas.
