WWDD: 5 Crochet Winter Fashion Trends to Hook Into
Crafters love keeping an eye on fashion trends! If you move quickly enough, you can crochet a project to keep up with your favorite winter trend before the weather warms up and the fashion world moves on to spring and summer looks. I consulted Vogue Paris to learn about this winter’s coolest crochet fashion trends. Here are some of my favorites!
Hygge (appreciating coziness) has been trending all over the internet, and now it is translating into what we wear. We can’t get enough of big and cozy wool in sweaters, home goods, blankets, and more. To follow that cozy trend, make yourself the Cuddle Up Poncho, the Calming Wall Hanging, or the Relaxing Motif Throw. Find these patterns and more in Interweave Crochet Winter 2018.
Turquoise is the color for winter! It reminds us of winter icicles but also brings a pop of color to a cold, dreary day. Crochet up some incredible turquoise projects with the Tranquil House Dress, the Soothing Shawl, or the Caressing Carpet. These patterns are in Interweave Crochet Winter 2018.
Checks and plaid patterning are perfect for winter; they make great layering pieces and convey a casual state of mind. Crochet your own checkered pattern with the Woodcutter’s Vest or layer plaid garments with other fun crochet projects like the Grimm Hat or the Enchanted Wolf Scarf. See some plaid styling inspiration in Interweave Crochet Winter 2018.
4. Menswear for women
There is nothing better than a cozy sweater that fits everyone! Men’s sweaters are big, cozy, casual, and a delight for women to wear. Luckily, the three men’s projects from Interweave Crochet Winter 2018 are written in unisex sizing so everyone can wear them! Start working the patterns for the Perrault Pullover, the Woodcutter’s Vest, and the Huntsman Sweater today!
Stripes are always in fashion, no matter the season. We jumped on this trend with two great striping projects in Love of Crochet Winter 2017! The Glamorous Gala Poncho uses Excel to plan its striping pattern, while the Parallel Celebrations Shawl uses the Fibonacci sequence. Learn about how to plan your own stripes with articles from the issue, then make these incredible projects.
