A New Wave of Crochet Gets Cool For Spring

crochet-trend-2009-1
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'.
