Today, I’m introducing a new category at Imperial Crochet called 3 Fun Etsy Finds. As an affiliate at Etsy, I’d like to show off some of the unique items that you can find there. All of my fun finds will always be crochet related and they’ll revolve around a theme. I’m not planning a set schedule for these posts just yet.
In case you aren’t aware, Etsy is a haven for artisans who sell their own creations but you can also find vintage items and craft supplies. Being an affiliate, I will earn a small royalty if you make a purchase after clicking one of my links but this will never cost you anything extra and it will not define my choices. I will only share things that I think are incredibly awesome and unique.
I also want to be clear that this is NOT a review of these items. I don’t own them. I just admire them and thought you might too.
And now without further ado I bring you the first edition of 3 Fun Etsy Finds at Imperial Crochet.
With the date of his birth and the 2nd anniversary date of his death both falling during this past week, and because I love him dearly, my first 3 fun finds will be about David Bowie. If I have to explain to you who he was and how awesome his life, music and art is/are/were, than you don’t belong here reading this right now. You can move along. If you DO know and love this superstar personality aka Ziggy Stardust, aka The Thin White Duke, aka Aladdin Sane, aka Jareth, aka Tesla, etc. etc. etc… AND you also love crochet, then by all means read on.
3 Fun Etsy Finds | David Bowie Crochet Edition
1. Aladdin Sane – David Bowie Inspired Yarn
I love this yarn. I imagine making something that I can wrap myself in. The variegated Blue, white, black, and orange colors are inspired by David Bowie’s Aladdin Sane Character. It’s made of 80% Superwash Merino and 20% Nylon.

2. David Bowie as Jareth Crochet Graph Pattern
This David Bowie as Jareth from the movie The Labyrinth graph pattern is truly spectacular and I’ve added this to my must-do-before-I-die crochet bucket list. I imagine it would make a gorgeous afghan or wall hanging.
