Granny Chic: Crochet so Hip You Might Have to Get a Replacement

by ·

Because of the rising popularity of sites like Etsy, and the resurgence of Handmade Markets, the crafts once considered Grandma are coming back – and they are coming back with a vengeance. Granny Chic now owns my heart, and I am sure it’s gotten many of yours as well. The good news? Even if you are not 100% convinced that you need needlepoint in your house, you can dip your big toe in with these crocheted show stoppers.

I love this rug so much I might have a stroke over it. While the making of said rug is a little difficult there are a myriad of Etsy sellers that are at your beck and call. Rugs like this are selling for $200-$600.

How about a simple crocheted dome light from Fab? I love how simple these are and I bet the shadows they cast are awesome.

So what if you aren’t ready to plunk down a few hundred bucks to bring some yarn love into your space? Or maybe you’re just a beginner? I hear that there is nothing easier to learn than a Granny Square.
You can start by making a pillow like the above.
