crazy crochet place

home goods + toys

I had my first crochet lesson when I was 10 years old and have been hooked ever since. I mastered basic stitches by making endless scarves, blankets, and potholders (thanks for hiding all the ugly ones, Mom). Nowadays my crochet efforts focus on amigurumi, the Japanese art of making small, stuffed yarn creatures. I've been making amigurumi since 2016, hunting down new patterns to expand my stash of crochet creatures & cacti. I also make home products (washcloths, mittens, etc.). 

Quality comes first in everything I make - my products are crocheted to last through many uses (or many hugs). My hope is for my customers to enjoy their purchase as much as I enjoyed making it. 


Lydia is a graduating senior at Hamline University in St. Paul, MN studying creative writing and journalism. When not crocheting, she's usually writing about family, home, and the things that make us feel we belong.
