Obsessed: 5 Cool Crochet Items You NEED This Spring

While the record-breaking Missoni for Target capsule collection might seem a distant memory at this point, thanks to more recent heavy-hitters (ahem Marni), the success of the Italian house's signature knits has had one lasting effect: seriously hip crochet looks popping up everywhere.
Like any good trend, this one connects with us on a subconscious level — first we were inexplicably drawn to that cute vintage top at Wasteland, next we spotted the Descendents' Shailene Woodley in that unbelievable Valentino at the DGA awards, then a few keyword searches for "crochet" led us to our favorite e-tailers, and before we knew what hit us, we were deep in the throes of a major addiction.
We know the texture may get a bad rap — you might be thinking grandma or grunge. But trust: This look is back and completely redefined as sexy, edgy, and refined. You know all those intricate holes are the easiest way to show some skin without giving it all away. So, click through to check out show-stopping crochet pieces and say it with us now: "my name is ___ and I'm a knitaholic"
