The Crochet Punk I’m writing about is Steampunk. Are you familiar with it? It’s a pretty cool fashion and craft phenomenon. I have been attracted to the ‘look’ for some time but had not seen crochet patterns that reflected this trend. Not so now. This pretty design is easily accomplished with this free pattern. You can find some more ‘gears’ from the same designer here.
Steampunk inspiration is very Victorian. Some people really delve into the period and come up with some great, updated looks that fit right into our modern fashion stylings. How about these lovely ruffled spats? I think they would dress up any old pair of boots and instantly update your look.
To match the ruffled spats, you might want to make one of these delicious ruffled cowls to complete your look. Isn’t it luxurious looking? The proper button choice will set off those ruffles and finish this cowl beautifully. You can order the pattern here.
Many people find the distance from Goth to Steampunk to be very short. There is plenty of inspiration around the internet if you dig around a bit. Check out sites for Punk, Goth, Steampunk, and Victorian to find all that is available to you. Rather than let the look take over, I find it perfect to use one carefully placed Steampunk element. A pair of Goth fingerless mitts or a pretty necklace may be the perfect touch for you. Let us know!
