It has been awhile since I’ve perused crochet on Etsy. Pinterest and Instagram have taken over my eye-candy-virtual-window-shopping crochet addiction.

But I do love the unique finds that Etsy offers and I thought I’d pop over there and take a peek at things I hadn’t seen, yet.

That’s how I discovered Tanya, a knit and crochet designer who creates beautiful fashion sold in the shop called RuchkiKruchkI.

Her OOAK garments are lacy, feminine, bohemian-inspired garments rich in florals and soft-bright colors.

I adore the incorporating of ruffled fabric woven into the crochet lace to create a blossomy texture.

Occasionally she’ll work with a more graphic print, like the classic granny square, reinvented and shaped perfectly to still exude feminine charm.

Many of the items made by this designer are intended for special occasions such as weddings. However, they can also be styled down to work as beautiful everyday wear.

Although most of the designs are for women, Tanya does make OOAK crochet garments for kids as well.

Tanya frequently works with natural wool. However, she also enjoys a number of other fibers including silk, cotton, cashmere and camel.

Her designs appear almost timeless to me. They are inspired by bohemian 60’s / 70’s cuts and colors but I can see influences from the 1920s and the 1950s and the designs are somehow also very contemporary.
