Bold Fall Crochet Fashion

When I think of fall, I think of crisp weather, leaves that turn to golds and reds, and fashion. Yes, fall is my favorite fashion season—the crochet hats, the scarves, and best of all the sweaters and jackets! This is the time of year when you can really show off what your crochet can do. So choose a bold crochet pattern.

  I love Doris Chan's Twilight Duster! Doris used spike treble crochet stitches to create a vintage houndstooth fabric. Bold, contrasting colors work great for this stunning pattern. I especially like the thick purple ribbing. If you don't want a full length duster, or you want to add more fabric, this top down seamless pattern is easy to modify. The beautiful drape and geometric patterning makes this a great choice for jeans or a little black dress.

For fall accessories that make a statement, combine a bold texture with bold colors. The Rapunzel Scarf by Kristen Hein Strohm uses rich plaits of crochet to create visible texture. This thick braid creates a warm accessory and a striking fashion statement. Try crocheting several in this year's popular bright colors.

  Another great fall stable is a fabulous wrap or shawl. Frequently a warm fall day will quickly change to a cool evening. Use that opportunity to drape an eye-catching stole around your shoulders. The Filet Crochet Sari-Wrap by Doris Chan in a brilliant red is an incredible accessory. Although this wrap is worked in a fine-weight yarn, the cashmere/silk/wool blend creates sumptuous warmth.

Now is your chance! Create a beautiful fall garment in a bold color, texture, or pattern. Download a stunning pattern in the Crochet Me Shop today!
