I think I've developed an addiction to making trend boards. I blame university for this. But today I'm sharing one of my favourite SS14 trends with you all and that is crochet. I've always been a fan of crochet, probably down to my mum being the talented little lovely that she is. She recently made me this rainbow jumper which I just love, the picture doesn't show how fab it really is so hopefully you'll be seeing it in an OOTD post soon enough!

Designers like Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana and Meadham Kirchhoff x Topshop have all incorporated crochet into their designs, with florals seeming to be a reoccuring theme. Crochet doesn't have to be loud and bright though, in fact it can look just like regular knitting, mere mortals like us can't really tell the difference, but for your own sake don't get the two confused or pinterest will come and hunt you down. My mother included.

What do you think of the crochet trend? Will you be going full on with a 'blanket dress' or just a little trim around some existing garments? One of my new years resolutions is to learn how to knit and crochet, so I'm off to get a lesson from the master. Let's see how this goes shall we.
