Watch out fashion world, Crochet is taking over!
I remember being a child in the chilly winter cuddling under and afghan and thinking I was the most cozy feeling and kept me warm. I even asked my grandmother to crochet me some but my wish never came to fruition. Now, as an adult myself I can make these fun and warm afghan pants myself!
Read on to learn more about these funky pants.
Ellers (designer of the crocheted afghan pants) embraces every style out there, from form-fitting booty shorts to extravagant bell-bottom pants. Most of these fabulous pieces are made of recycled vintage crochet afghans; according to Ellers’ shop, “Afghan blankets are original pieces of folk art, hand made by artisans across America since the 1960’s and well before. With scissors and a sewing machine I transform vintage crochets into wearable sculpture!”
