IT SEEMS like it’s been an age since we were all learning how to knit on YouTube because of lockdown. Sparking a worldwide resurgence of different knits and twists, lockdown boredom has paved a new path for crochet.
This guide will show how the trend came into play in the past season, and how you can make the most of this trend before the wintery temperature drop. From casual to elegant, we cover all the bases.
If you, like me during lockdown, needed to find a way to escape by learning something new or creating, you may recognise the familiar knitting knots of crochet, which became one of the many fascinations birthed from that time spent at home. Now, a year or so on, crochet has seeped into luxury fashion consciousness like never before.
Crochet offers an adaptable quality many knit pieces cannot. It is airy enough for summer fits and also great for a cosy, comfortable feel. And with the first day of autumn starting tomorrow, according to the astronomical calendar, let’s make use of these last few weeks of sunshine by wearing pieces from CULT GAIA to Chloe.
