23 Cool Crochet Pieces I Can’t Stop Thinking About

(Okay, an arts-and-crafts class led by one ridiculously chic arts-and-crafts teacher.) First, we had the resurgence of the wildly retro beaded bag trend—thank you, Susan Alexandra , Shrimps , and various high-street retailers —and now we're in the midst of a veritable explosion of crochet.
