A Note from the Editor

The weather outside might still be frightful, but that doesn’t mean you have to be down in the dumps! It might not seem like it, but spring is looming. January and February can be challenging to crochet for – the temperature is still cool but warmer days on the horizon, which means a shift from crocheting cozy and dense hats to lightweight, breathable shawls and scarves. To help you with this transition, we’ve collected some of the coziest crocheted pieces and mixed them with bold and beautiful designs that are perfect for spring.

To get your house ready for warmer seasons, while still keeping warm, don’t miss our Live in Color section. Here you’ll discover the delightful Rose Trellis Afghan, featuring traditional square motifs with pops of colorful crocheted roses. In Light Frost, there’s plenty of winter wearables that are ideal for the cold. From the Snow Puff Ear Warmer to the incredibly warm Cozy Leg Warmers you’ll find projects that will keep you cozy from head to toe.

If you find that you’re itching to embrace the upcoming season (with style) head over to our Succulent Hues section. The stunning Aloe Bloom Shawl and delicate Tuscon Wrap capture the beauty of real succulents which shift in color from green to blue.

Stay warm,
