A New Wave of Crochet Gets Cool For Spring

Don't laugh but this spring could find you in stitches. First there was cork's return to cool, and lately we've been spotting some stylish plays on crochet. Preen worked the lo-fit knits in mesh slips while Rachel Comey's crocheted accessories put a high-fashion spin on the home-spun. But before you become a total knit-wit, we've found a few more crochet creations that we think are pretty bitchin'.
