Fall Winter 2011-by-Stephanie-Wong

Today we are celebating World Knit In Public Day.  Established in 2005, this day is celebrated the 2nd Saturday in June, making it June 13 2015. In the eyewear industry, we have seen many ways that knitters can make or adorn their eyewear, from decorating the frame to making temple cozys to croqueting the lenses.

These knitted eyeglasses I found on Pinterest via Sheepish Knit Crochet

Another look, that picks up the chunky, large frame is done in pink. This isn’t really knitted, but it is using yarn.

On Etsy, a bubble gum look, makes this twisted version a snazzy spectacle.

You can even do stripes in this upbeat naval look.

These rimless knitted eyeglasses were done by Stephanie Wong in 2011

This Tapestry Spectacle was done via 3D printing

Aura Tout Vu featured crocheted Eyewear in their 2009 Runway show

This is known as a QR code eyeglass

Claude Bossett has a different take, this is more of a macrame look.

Knitted Eyeglasses have been seen on runways! Louis Vuitton showcased knitted lenses in 2010.

Not to be outdone, Chanel 2010 had their little crochet look going on

Simone Rochas in 1014 featured a black knitted cat- eye on the runway

Apologies in advance for no credit to this picture, I cannot find the source. This has the look of a dream-catcher.

Another image with a knitted look that I can’t find the source.. the lenses appear to be held in by croquet work.

This were introduced in 2014. Frame warmers?
