2020 Crochet Trends Featured Image(1)

When I started researching this article, I must say I was shocked and pleasantly surprised to find the runways covered!  Designers from Valentino to Dior are grabbing their hooks. How exciting is this?!  Crafters around the world are doing a happy dance and so are we.

“This is the season of yarn!”

In this post, we will show you all the trending colors, color tools, mood boards, wares, and inspiration to make 2020 the year of success for your shops, friends, and family – or just for you!

What’s Trending in the World for 2020?



The dresses on the runway are certainly cute, stylish, and interesting.  I say interesting because as a designer I love seeing new and creative designs.  These do not disappoint.  “This is not your grandmother's yarn,” seems to be the quote runway critics are using for these colorful designs, and they are right.
The colors remind me of tasty ice cream, like rainbow sherbert (my fav).  Of course, our Etsy Shops and Shopify stores can't compete with the Paris runway…or can they?!  Yes, I say, yes we can, and I look forward to seeing your runway-inspired designs.

Pants & Shorts

In 2020, long pants are fun, funky, airy, and free-flowing and jumpsuits are back!  The best trend of the ’70s and happy to see them making a comeback.  There are so many colors and yarn possibilities with these cute jumpsuits.



Accessories are perhaps my favorite thing to make.  They work up fast, and as seen below, you can use a variety of yarns, twines, and raffia.
You'll probably recognize some of these stitches too.  I see Solomon's Knot on the Miu Miu bag, what stitches do you see?  Leave a comment below.  I've already seen a design inspired by the blue Altuzarra bag below.  I cannot wait to see more!
According to Vogue, crochet accessories are hot in 2020 and included in their Top 11 Accessory Trends of Spring 2020

Crop Tops

Do crop tops ever go out of style?    These runway tops are bold, chunky, and fun.



Headbands are a great way to feel the accomplishment of conquering a WIP!  According to Moogly, who wrote this nice article for Yarnspirations about her 2020 trend predictions, headbands will be all the rage in 2020.  What do you think?
I love headbands because they work up so fast and give me the sense that I've accomplished something.
