Flower Fringe Shawlette

The Winter issue of Crochet! is out! And while I’m the editor, the cover decision is made by committee. I was thrilled that we chose my Floral inspired motif wrap, Flower Fringe Shawlette, for the cover. I have never had a design on the cover of Crochet! magazine before, not in all the years as a designer or the 3 years as editor, so I’m really happy! I hope you like it!

I’m going to be doing a live Facebook video tutorial/post about the shawlette on Nov 7 at  12:30 EST (I’m pretty sure that’s right) and it will be on the Crochet! magazine Facebook page.

Right now we are working on the Spring 2017 issue and it’s SPECTACULAR.  Let me give you two hints…. 1. It’s the 15th Anniversary issue and 2. Jenny King.

In honor of this new information, here is a photo of a cute seagull in the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland!

Do you know why Seagulls are from the sea?

Because if they were from the bay, they would be Bagels!

Shining Shells Throw

Did you see my post a few days ago of the ‘Let the Lace Go Top’? Designer Linda Dean, designed that top AND the Shining Shells Throw  AND the Unfurling Hat, all in this issue! It’s a Linda Dean bonanza and I can’t be happier to show off her versatility as a designer. M22164_LetTheLaceGo_300 M22164_ShiningShells_300 M22164_Unfurling_300

First, let’s look at the Shining Shells Throw. It’s classic crochet but yet it looks so fresh and modern with the banded edging and the join-as-you-go motif method. And GOLD, have you seen the color gold recently look so great? It’s lovely. It’s stitched in Brown Sheep Company Lanaloft fine in feather gold.

Next, the Unfurling Hat! Rowan Colorspun light (DK) has a lovely multi-color look that is amazing in this post-stitch hat. The corkscrew crown of the hat is made of cleverly placed front and back post stitches and then the pattern extends down to the brim. You’ll love the warmth in this wool/mohair/polyamide yarn.

Get all these patterns and MORE in the autumn issue of Crochet! Get your instant download here.

Let the Lace Go Top

Can we talk about the fabulous Let the Lace Go Top for a moment? It’s so lovely. It’s so pretty and special and festive. It’s so interesting and different! I just love it.  Why did I not try it on when I had the chance? Hence forth I shall try on every garment that comes in so that I can savor the moment while I have the chance.

M22164_LetTheLaceGo_300

This intermediate skill level top is easier than it looks. It’s a basic rectangle shell and then the lace overlay is crocheted off the top of the shell and worked downward. Linda Dean designed the top to fit sizes small to 2X using Designing Vashti Lotus cotton/rayon yarn.

Get this amazing pattern plus 24 more in an instant download of the autumn issue.

She designed it so that the smallest instructions will fit child size 8 and the largest instructions will fit ladies bust size 43″.  Yay!  Wetherell sweaters for everyone!

It’s stitched in the lovely Cascade Yarns Venezia Sport fine yarn. Get this pattern and 24 more in the autumn issue of Crochet! Get your instant download here.
