Which is your favorite?
Lots of styles and trends from the 70s are making a comeback today! While there are some things we could do without – like shag carpet and men’s jumpsuits – there are quite a few things we’ll gladly bring back! Birkenstocks, frayed jeans, and maxi dresses are all making a comeback, and so are chic crochet clothing items! Here are a few 70s style crochet projects we can’t wait to bring back!
Crochet Cuff Bracelets
Aren’t these crochet cuffs amazing? If you’re looking for a fun and easy crochet project, there’s nothing better than a quick crochet cuff. There are so many styles, from a chunky chorded bracelet to a more intricate one with beads. The sky is the limit!
If you were around in the 70s, you know macrame was all the rage. Usually it came in the form of wall hangings or plant hangers, but it also showed up in jewelery and clothing items. In this tutorial you can see how to create that same macrame look using loose chain stitches for a fun, retro scarf!
Granny Square Everything
Granny squares are a staple for every crocheter, and they were certainly a very popular choice in the 70s! While we don’t think granny squares themselves ever went out of style, we can’t wait to see more of them in clothes and scarves soon!
The flower headband was a staple in the 70s! We love seeing it come back in style now as a more country chic style. Get the free pattern for this lovely crochet floral headband right here!
