A look back at 2016 in crochet. We have already looked at crochet art and crochet books. Now let’s enjoy some CROCHET FASHION.
Modular Crochet is a vintage 1970s crochet book by Judith Copeland that has been republished recently by Dover. It continues to be a terrific book today because it provides a simple method of combining super simple shapes in myriad ways to create well-fitting garments in a range of styles as suitable to today’s wardrobe as when it was first written.
I’ve shared the beautiful work of designer Tatyana from Ruchki Kruchki before. She is a prolific knit and crochet designer whose stunning fashions always make me look twice when the images pop up on Instagram. I thought I’d share some of the most recent images here today but be sure to go to Instagram to see them all!
It is always inspiring to see designer crochet hit the runways and the shows for Spring 2017 have been no exception.
Sensual Crochet promotes the idea that we should spoil ourselves with luxury yarns and clothes that make us feel sexy. This is crochet as self-care, which is something I’m passionate about (as you know if you’ve read Hook to Heal!)
Many crochet blankets have been abandoned over the years, relegated to yard sales, thrift stores and basement storage. Bring those beauties out of hiding and put them to use. Here are 15 fabulous examples of crochet blankets that have been upcycled into new items.
I adore the work that fashion design duo NatarGeorgiou creates, making high fashion garments that frequently incorporate crochet elements. I’ve been having a look at their Fall ’15-16 creations, which I had somehow missed earlier in the season, and I’m enjoying several of the beautiful pieces.
