Crochet on the Runway

20120507-225144.jpg

A contribution to the resurgence of crochet in popularity can be attributed to the runway and the fashion world. Woman’s fashion is taking a stroll through the ultra feminine side of things which makes open work and lace appealing. The above piece was just one crocheted piece I saw in the Manhattan shop of the widely popular Anthropologie!

My favorite piece this season I saw was a filet crochet inspired top that was super feminine and ultra elegant! I saw this at Free People in Manhattan earlier this year however I have not been able to find a picture since but am still on the hunt!

The Vogue Knitting issue of Crochet, elevated the art of crocheting to the world of high fashion. Mari Lynn Patrick, who is a veteran of the industry reinvented the granny square. Who knew a granny square could be so fashion forward! My other favorites were the various jewelry pieces that I can’t wait to start stitching!

What’s your favorite crochet trend on the runways? 5 Comments and a free Chain 2 pattern will be releases and better yet a hint of Chain 2’s phase two will be revealed!!!

Crochet Soundtrack- The Voice

Tonight as I crocheted, I was serenaded by the wonderful talent on the Voice. My favorite although he didn’t win was Chris Mann! Wow what a voice! It also just happens to be that his mom Judith Mann is a member of the TNNA.

I don’t know about you but I actually frequently stitch to music! After taking a class with the very talented designer Mari Lynn Patrick, I actually now come up with playlists for the things I’m stitching. She stated in class and in an interview with Interweave Press that she listens to music that helps inspire her designs. So why not, I said! Last night while watching The Voice I was designing a capelet perfect for a summer day that has a little country flair. The yarn is one of my favorites Green Mountain Spinnery’s Sylvan Spirit. My normal playlist would have been a little modern country like Taylor Swift, Shania Twain, Miley Cyrus or even a little Dolly Parton (she is a secret favorite of mine!) But the playful selections of last night were perfect and Lady Antebellum was one of the featured artists so it was just perfect!
