Spring/Summer ’15 Fashion Trends: Denim

We know what you’re thinking, ‘denim’s been around for years!’ and you’d be absolutely right, it’s a staple! But this spring/summer sees a breach beyond the classic denim jean and a move towards something bolder. Jenni talks us through how to knit the trend and projects to pair up with your classics!

From double denim pairing to cropped denim jackets, fashion houses have put their own stamp on denim. Now you might be thinking, how can I knit denim?? Ok, so we don’t have yarn made of denim, but we do have some gorgeous replica yarns like the 100% cotton Rowan Original Denim. And I’ve picked two gorgeous patterns from Rowan to knit with it (one of them is free, yippee!)

1. Calito Sweater by Rowan – free pattern

I love this denim look jumper by Rowan, it’s such a great transititional piece for spring to summer and it really reminds me of this Gucci top. Click here to Download the pattern for FREE.

2. Thelma Crop Top by Rowan

We love this crop top from American Apparel, but if you want to make your own this Thelma Crop Top pattern by Rowan is a great option! How sweet is the little denim pocket? Find the pattern here.

These next two options are projects to match denim items you probably already have in your wardrobe! The classic denim jacket and denim shorts…

3. We Are Knitters Ginger Dress

Burberry matched cropped denim jackets with cute summery dresses. We think this chunky Ginger Dress by We Are Knitters would go great paired with some denim shorts and layered up with a denim jacket.

4. Hannah Tee by Vicki Brown

Pair up your denim shorts with a cute tee like Roberto Cavalli. We love this crochet Hannah Tee pattern (another key trend of the season) by independent designer Vicki Brown. Find the pattern here.
