History: I am at least the fifth generation of women in my family who crochet. My mother taught me, her mother taught her, you know how it goes. I learned to crochet at an early age and loved it. While some kids loved getting new toys, I loved getting new yarn.

Salem Style was founded in December 2011. It all started with a hat. I wanted to make a hat for my boyfriend for Christmas. I found myself making lots of hats and designing my own patterns and wearing them out. People kept asking me where I got my hat, and when I told them I made it, they asked if they could buy one from me. I figured I would open an Etsy shop and see where it goes.

Today: With over 20 years of crocheting experience, Anything but your grandma’s crochet, Salem Style offers unique handmade accessories for the stylish individual.

Every knitwear item is crocheted by hand, by me, in historic and beautiful Salem Massachusetts.

It’s way more than just hats. I create my own designs and find the yarn that I see best fit for each item. every item is crocheted by hand, by me, in historic and beautiful Salem Massachusetts. the shop is ever changing and evolving because inspiration is everywhere.

Now, we also have curated accessories that have been hand picked to accompany your knitwear. I hope you check everything out and find something you love. And Stay Wild Moon Child. ☾
