What Is Boho Style?

When you first think of boho style, you’ll likely think of the ‘fashion trend.’ You’ll picture in your mind those flowing lines, romantic long skirts, flared pants, crop and bra tops, short shorts, and that free-loving style from the huge ’60s and ’70s music events. Wearing a poncho was all the rage, as were tassel bags, crochet tops, and crochet bags. Granny squares were EVERYWHERE! Can you see it now?

Well, guess what? Yep – it’s back! In fact, there always seems to be something boho in style.

You’ll also be thinking fringe, headbands, more granny squares (in every color combination under the sun), more tassels, peekaboo lace, mesh openwork, bell bottom blue jeans, round John Lennon glasses, sandals, and walking barefoot through meadows full of tall grass and flowers. Some call it the hippy or hippie look, but I think boho has a little more romance thrown into the mix, along with that love and peace, man.

Yes, I think boho is a feeling or vibe as well as a style. It’s almost a way of life rather than just a fashion trend. I think it’ll always be around. I know I know…now you can hear that music, too, right? Smell those scents? Uh-huh! You got it!

Why Crochet Boho?

Now that we’re in just the right relaxed, laid-back, easygoing frame of mind, let’s think more about that cool boho style and explore some reasons why you might want to crochet boho.

Like I said…it’s a way of life…a feeling of being a free spirit. Some fantastic crochet patterns emulate that feeling of enjoying life. Many crochet patterns use some kind of crochet motif as a focal point on the bodice of a top and then use a simple crochet stitch around it, making the motif really stand out as the highlighted feature.

Motifs, such as granny squares and their relatives, can make a fabulous border at the hem of a skirt, a crochet top, a cardigan, or a long duster-style crochet vest.

If you’re not so much into wearing boho crochet, but you love the style, why not try working on a boho crochet bag pattern or a wall hanging? You can find some awesome boho home decor crochet patterns too. How about we check out a few free crochet boho patterns right now?
