I know a lot of crocheters who love Japanese crochet patterns. I love looking at the cute things that people make using these patterns although I don’t really use them myself since I tend to be a less visual crocheter and don’t really like working from symbol charts. Nevertheless, I sometimes catch myself going to the craft section of the local Japanese bookstore near me and eyeing the styles. Japanese fashions are so unique, particularly those of the Harajuku Girls and Mori Girls, and I love seeing if I can spot crochet in those fashions.

Harajuku Girls and Mori Girls

Harajuku is a section of Tokyo and the term Harajuku Girls refers to the fashion style that emerged from this section. It is actually comprised of a variety of different styles ranging from punk inspired to looks to Gothic styles to boldly colorful cosplay inspired costumes. Mori Girls are easier to pinpoint; their kind of like the hippie bohemian counterpoint to the Harajuku Girl and tend to embrace natural colors and textures inspired by things like forests and fairies. As you might expect, it’s more common to see crochet among the Mori Girls style but you can find it sometimes on Harajuk Girls as well.
