10 Spring Fashion Trends to Crochet!
It’s that time. A new season arrives, the sun begins to shine, and it is time to get on top of the trends for spring. You can start packing away those chunky wools, stop thinking about cables, and try out these stunning crochet projects. You’ll be on top of the crochet fashion trends in no time! Let us know in the comments below which of these trends is your favorite (ours is No. 10) and which you would never try.
1. Floral Embroidery
Stunning floral prints are all over the runway this season. This is a technique that can be difficult to achieve in crochet. Unless you choose to embroider! Crochet can be an excellent surface texture for adding some embroidery. If you want to try it out, you can practice on the Flourishing Purse or the Sumptuous Sandals from Interweave Crochet Spring 2018.
You can make any crochet project in this popular color, but if you’re looking for projects with a neutral color palette for spring, you’ll love the vintage-lace projects from Interweave Crochet Summer 2018. The Ever-New Skirt and Time-Honored Sweater are some of our favorites.
3. Handle Bags
The great thing about crocheting a bag is you can add any handle you like! You can even switch them out based on the current trends. A great trend for spring is a bag with short handles rather than straps. Try this with the Flourishing Purse from Interweave Crochet Spring 2018, or make the Basking Crossbody Bag from Interweave Crochet Summer 2018 and try replacing the shoulder strap with short, wooden handles.
4. High-Waisted Pants
High-waisted pants and skirts aren’t disappearing this spring. If you’d like to make a cropped top to pair with this trend, you can’t go wrong with the Yesteryear Top from Interweave Crochet Summer 2018 or the Suave Sweater from Interweave Crochet Fall 2018.
5. Oversized Hats
Hats with large brims are the statement piece this spring. They’ll shield your eyes from the sun as the days start to get brighter, and they are so much fun to make. Try the Jardin Hat from Interweave Crochet Summer 2017 or the Sun-Kissed Hat from Interweave Crochet Summer 2016.
Resist dyes are in this year! For tips and tricks on resist-dyeing your crochet projects, check out Interweave Crochet Summer 2018. You’ll love trying out these dye methods on the Shibori Pillow and the Blue-on-Blue Sweater from the same issue.
Bring on those bright colors! Every crochet project can be made in a range of bright and neon colors. If you’re looking for some bright-color inspiration, try the Colorado Poncho or the Sonoran Shrug from Crochetscene 2017.
Projects with fringe are my favorite! If you’re excited to try cutting a ton of fringe, there are a number of projects in Interweave Crochet Spring 2018 with excellent fringe. Our favorites are the Aloe Wrap and the Frontier Shawl.
Vests of all shapes, sizes, and styles are popular this year. The best part about making a vest is you don’t have to worry about inserting any sleeves! Try the Vined Vest from Interweave Crochet Spring 2018 or the Hot Cocoa Vest from Interweave Crochet Winter 2019.
No joke, stitchers! I saw crochet or “craft” on multiple trend boards for this season. What luck! Basically, if you make anything from Interweave Crochet, you’ll be on top of trends for spring!
