Into the Woods crochet sweater

Jack from the movie Into the Woods wears this sweater that looks almost like armor. I think it was made using a simple single crochet stitch.

Michael Kors Knitting Turtle Neck Inspiration

 Michael Kors usually has some oversized sweaters or scarves in his fall / winter collections that I add to my "must design" notebook. Knitwear has gotten so cool!

Sibling Sweater

 As usual I love it when I come across pieces in high fashion magazines that would be so much fun to make and wear!  I happened upon this bit of fabulousness at the library. My daughter and I were luxuriating in the cozy chairs reading books and the New York TimesFashion Magazine September issue. The article being Pretty in Pink.

Roving Dress

This dress by Johan Wu was inspiration for a dress I made for a wearable art show. Warning, if you make one, model it during winter, roving is warm.

Michael Kors Crochet Dress & Pattern

This is a Michael Kors ad from the December 2014 issue of W magazine. Love it when knitting and crochet makes the pages of high fashion magazines! This crochet dress is similar to a pattern that is in the 2005 January 31 Interweave Crochet magazine. 

Lace Dress is a pattern from the January 2005 Interweave Magazine that you can get copy of via the link above if you would like to make your own.

Mui Mui Granny Granny Square Crochet Tops & pattern

Mui Mui has these 60's crochet granny square vests (cashmere) in their 2015 Spring Resort Collection. The top picture is from the latest W magazine. Whenever I see knitting or crochet on the runway I want to runway right out and make one for myself, or my teen daughter. The picture below has a link in text to an Etsy store that sells a pattern that to my eye is the same vest in different colors and likely different fibers.

Just saw The Girl On Fire and am nuts for this sweater. I may try to do something with this inspiring me for the wearable art show!
