Crochet ideas

So, how do you decide what to make when you’re thinking of new crochet ideas?

I guess there are four basic routes I’ve discovered so far: take existing ideas and adapt them to different uses; look at general trends and think if you could apply crochet to any of these; look historically at how people used lace through the ages and wonder if any of these could be refreshed and revisited; hire a designer or ask a design student for input.

The last one in some ways seems the most obvious – ask the person who knows – but this can be expensive and in, more often in the case of students, sometimes rather random.  Still, we all have good and bad days and it’s a process of trial and error.
