Do you believe in the healing power of crystals? Are you a grower of geodes? Whether or not you have a stockpile of colorful rocks next to your bed, there’s no denying that these organic forms are sprouting up everywhere. You can’t scroll through a single Pinterest page without running into a geode-inspired craft project or a tutorial on how to decorate your home with crystalized shapes and geometric forms. Everything, even easy knitting patterns are inspired by these natural elements. Current fashion is full of triangles, hexagons, and other prism-like shapes. Even the editors at AllFreeKnitting aren’t immune to the charms of these pretty prisms! (My latest impulse buy was a beautiful knit vest with a gorgeous geometric pattern.) Jewelry is veering more toward organic forms and natural materials. Some designers have even taken to slapping a rough-hewn rock on a metal band and calling it jewelry. With New Year’s resolutions still in full swing, it seems like everyone is promoting healthy ways to purify your life. Are crystals and geodes the answer? Is it possible to knit good health into a sweater?
Whether or not you’re convinced by the cleansing elements of crystals, there’s no doubt that these organic forms are beautiful in their own right. If anything, the colors of these gorgeous, gem –like forms are inspiration enough for a few easy knitting patterns.
