Impart some depth and color to your home with crochet. Here, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite, non-traditional accessories to help inspire ideas on making your own, either out of natural fibers or recycled materials.
Above: We have long been admirers of these handknit Urchin Poufs from Thomas Eyck: The chunky texture, rich shades, and organic forms are alluring, and their modular nature makes them a practical accent piece for the home.
Above: Perfect for adding warmth; Barcelona-based La Casa De Coto creates hand crocheted stool covers out of cotton. This particular design is meant to be put over the Alseda stool from Ikea.
Above: Add chunky texture to your bed with a crocheted throw, such as this Oatmeal and Mustard colored one by Toast.
Above: Unexpected greenery: A Crocheted Cactus, hand-knitted by a Toronto artist.
Above: A perfect indoors project for the winter months: create your own rag rug. We spotted this version crocheted from cotton muslin on Save Haven. Connect the strips by crocheting them so that one strip overlaps the next. (Image via Ribbons Undone.)
