Trend Report: Contemporary Crochet

November 7, 2013 | Alex

In researching my post on Orange is the New Black, I came across a lot of fascinating applications of crochet. No longer is crochet the exclusive domain of the technicolor granny square blanket. I'm happy to report that there are products that are downright sophisticated. I especially like the inky blues and other worldly shapes. Who knew crochet could be sexy?
