The fall season is expected to see a revival of chunky crochet textures, with bulky yarns such as merino wool and alpaca blends likely to be in the spotlight. This trend will give crochet designers the opportunity to create plush and cozy designs, such as oversized scarves, big cardigans, and snuggly blankets. By incorporating exaggerated stitches and extensive designs, designers can add warmth and comfort to their projects.
In contrast to chunky textures, the trend of delicate lacework is something we should embrace. You can create shawls, scarves, and even dresses with meticulous craftsmanship to exude an air of grace and elegance. Lace is not only for the feminine. Intricate stitch combinations, motifs, and openwork designs can create superb textures to showcase the skill of the designer and create breathtaking designs.
As you plan your Autumn designs, remember that color inspiration is all around you. Take a cue from nature’s palette and draw from earthy and jewel tones to create a sense of grandeur and luxury. Earth tones such as olive green, mustard yellow, and burnt orange can evoke a feeling of warmth and comfort. Meanwhile, jewel tones like sapphire blue, emerald green, and deep plum can add richness to your designs. These colors perfectly complement the changing landscape of the season and can add depth to your creations.
Modern Boho Vibes:
It seems like the bohemian spirit is still going strong, and this fall, we can expect even more boho vibes! Crochet designers will continue to create boho-style designs with a modern twist. Adding fringe and tassels to crocheted wearables and home decor is a great way to achieve this look.
