friday faves: crochet

After last week’s post you realize I’ve gone a little gaga with the crochet.  I’ve spent a lot of time browsing ravelry and pinterest looking at crochet projects.  It’s a whole new world.

Here are a couple of my new faves…

crochet skirts

  • Maxi crochet skirt by Conceptcreativeblog – lacy and lovely; can be made any length
  • Herringbone skirt by Elisa Sugishita – great texture and some of the projects show it more streamlined without the bottom ruffle.  Many do complain about all the double crochet though.
  • Mauve by Kim Hargreaves – fun use of granny squares!

  • Noir Necklace by Melody Maria Fulone – crochet thread makes it daintier and it’s a great excuse for a few pretty beads
  • Julie Cuff by Robyn Chachula – I don’t like the bulk of cuffs but a lighter, flatter one?  I think I can…
  • Lotus Flowers Cuff by creativeyarn – Another cuff but this one has a nice curved edge

Looking through crochet projects opened a whole new world.  New designers, new designs, lots to get lost in.  One thing I needed to adjust to – the amount of yarn used.  A couple thousand yards for a blanket or a skirt wasn’t unusual.

But they are fun and pretty.

I’ll catch you on the (purl?) side…
