Crochet has been on trend for the last few seasons and it looks to remain very popular for winter 2012 and into spring 2013. Many of the influential designers have included crochet in their catwalk shows, helping to dispel the once ‘dowdy’ image of crochet and making it ‘chic’ and a must have item to wear. The Christopher Kane collection in particular received much acclaim, reviving the use of the traditional ‘granny square’. Looks can vary from the fitted, high round neck sweater to the grunge inspired loose structured knit.
