One trend that's probably made its way into your social feed is crochet. ICYDK, crocheting is a process that requires a hook and some yarn where you make loops and stitches to create beautiful pieces. Whether it's a high school batchmate whose suddenly taken it up as a hobby or a cute Instagram shop selling crocheted bikinis, cup holders, or earrings, there's no denying that everyone's hooked (pun intended).
And while you can definitely learn how to make crochet items on your own, there are plenty of shops online for your to choose from. Here are some of our faves!
Hook The Look
All about slow fashion, Hook The Look offers several items including scrunchies (P100), a headband (P200), a pair of earrings (P125), and more. They use hand-dyed, velvet, and milk cotton yarn. The good news is that they accept commissioned work, though their basic prices are subject to change depending on yarn type, crafting time, and the amount of yarn necessary to complete your request.
