You're about to see fishnets everywhere. No, we’re not talking about tights. We’re not even talking about those adorable (though impractical) net handbags that were so popular last summer. We’re talking about your grandmother’s favorite pastime: Crochet. This wide stitch lets in just enough of that cool ocean breeze so you won't overheat and offers a little extra coziness at night when the temps drop, making this versatile weave one of our ultimate summer staples. So go ahead, put those balloon-sleeve knits from 2018 into storage and make room for these 20 crochet stunners.
