Crochet may not have entirely rid itself of all granny connotations, but we’re falling in love with the retro knit all over again. No longer confined to arts and crafts fanatics or those grans in the Shreddies commercials, a slew of pieces with the happy hippy knit was sent down the Spring-Summer 2020 runways of misty-eyed nostalgics like Isabel Marant, Giambattista Valli, and Altuzarra.
While crochet’s fashion pedigree actually dates back to the blessed ‘10s creation: the doily, it’s the ‘70s iteration we’re happier to see resurrected; less granny chic, more bohemian bliss.
Those yet to be convinced should take a peek at our selection of the cutest crochet pieces for this season (BFF and grandma approval guaranteed).
