Crochet garments have been around for a very long time. However, it wasn’t until the 2017 spring/summer collections that people really saw the potential of these garments. From swimwear to jackets and sexy dresses, crochet garments have dominated the 2017 fashion trends, and by the way things are looking, we will be seeing quite a lot of this trend in the following years. The great thing about this trend is that it is accessible to anyone. Usually, high couture is very expensive, and difficult to replicate, since we are talking about expensive fabrics and impeccable tailoring. However, when it comes to crochet garments, they can easily be replicated by anyone with some basic crochet skills. If you don’t know how to crochet, there are countless online tutorials that will help you master this craft. So, you might want to place an order for some bulk yarn, because it is time to start crocheting. Here are some ideas that will inspire you and motivate you to master the crochet needles:
1. Crochet swimwear
This type of project is perfect for beginners, due to the fact that you are dealing with very small garments that won’t take a long time to complete. However, before you attempt replicating the Moschino bikini top featured in the above picture, you might want to try an easier pattern first. Mixing different yarn colors requires some skill, so it is better to work with a single yarn color until you get the hang of things.
2. Granny square crochet dress
Do not be intimidated by this dress. It seems complicated, but it is in fact very easy to make. This dress features the granny square pattern, which is often used for blankets. This is one of the most popular crochet patterns in the world, and there are countless tutorials that teach you how to do these squares. Moreover, your dress doesn’t have to be as long as the Moschino one. You can start with a shorter version, and if that doesn’t take too long to complete, you can always add more squares for length. Just make sure to buy enough yarn, so you don’t run out of it in the middle of your project. We advise you to buy bulk yarn, because it will cost you less, and it will motivate you to finish all your projects.
3. Striped crochet garments
Crochet stripes are very easy to make and they are the best patterns for beginners. Moreover, they can be integrated in any types of clothes, from scarfs to sweaters, bodysuits, cardigans and much more. We personally love the Balmain bodysuit and long cardigan combination featured in the above picture. The trick with stripes is to not be afraid to combine bold colors.
