Lots of my favorite crochet designers have put out new collections and lookbooks so I wanted to take a moment to round them up for you, share some of the pieces I adore the most and point you to where you can find out more.
It’s that time of year, the time for looking back and checking out all of the amazing things that we’ve seen in crochet all throughout the year. So far we’ve looked at crochet art in 2015 and 2015 crochet books. Today let’s look at crochet fashion from this year.
Michael Kors, who began his career as a crocheter, has always incorporated interesting and fun crochet into his fashion lines. It’s fun to look at these and see what he’s done, and the designs can serve as great inspiration for your own crochet ideas, like the Zara and Cortefiel pieces that we’ve looked at previously. There are many places to get craft inspiration and fashion is definitely a top spot!
