The world of fashion is always changing. This can be the colors, the looks and the fabrics that are used. Things that may be popular today may be gone tomorrow replacing it with something new.
It also has cycles where the fashion in the 50’s or 60’s, for example, are making a come back in the 21st century and designs are no exceptions. This is why more designers these days are focusing once again on crochet patterns. And I love what I would suppose are called vintage patterns with my fascination of the 70’s.
Crochet patterns in the past were often used for the home. This can make a good blanket or a coaster for the drink but some people have found another use for that and that is in the world of fashion.
The patterns used here are not just for young people. It can be used by anybody and finding the right one that will go well with the top, the jacket or the shirt is just the beginning.
Crochet can be done in different sizes and shapes. Some can be in the form of a wheel or a star that has different colors in it. This can be done at home by following a stitching book to see how it is done.
Another can be done in the shape of an animal like a cat or a bird that will also take some time to develop it before being able to see the actual picture.
Other patterns can be done in argyle, Afghans, daisy, and flower which are good for any occasion. There are even designs that feature the spirit of Christmas which allows the person to wear this all year round.
With summer coming, crochet patterns can also be used at the beach in two-piece swimsuits. Most designs are in plain colors but for the person to be flashy, adding 2 or 3 colors will do just fine.
Stitches can be done in single and in double making it thicker which is good for people who live in cold climates. This allows people to use it as scarves, capes, and coats that make it look great with anything the person has in the closet.
Some think that crochet patterns are only for women but it can also work for men as well. This can be made into a patch for the arm, a hat and a pair of gloves that are very comfortable for the one who is going to use it.
The crochet pattern is easy once the person has some knowledge about stitching. The other thing also needed to make it work is some yarn and a few needles. Making the thread go into holes around a certain area produces shapes and designs which the designer and people will only get to appreciate when it is finished.
The first thing that needs to be done is to draw it on paper. After making the layout, choosing the right type of yarn is important since the weight will affect the gauge and texture of the thing the person will be making.
People should start with basic stitching before moving on to other more complex crochet patterns. The best place to learn patterns is through books and some information that is also available on the internet. These sources not only show the design but also how to do which makes it easy for anyone to catch on.
While shopping, the person can also enter a store, study the design on how a top was made then try to apply it. This will really help a lot improve the skill of the person who may be one day would like to sell the works done.
Crochet patterns can be done on almost anything. It can be the top that the person will wear to the mall, the bag to compliment the outfit and the holder of the palm or phone that the person is carrying around.
Since people have shown how easy it is to make, the individual does not need to go to the mall and buy it at the shop. But rather go home and sit on the couch and make it. There are many other things that people can make using the crochet pattern. It just takes a little imagination to bring that idea from paper into a reality.
