Spread the love with these perfect winter patterns

Dear Crochet Friend,

February will be here before know it. Spread your love of crochet with some heartfelt, handmade gifts. The I Like Crochet February 2024 Issue has over a dozen projects for you: pillows to brighten your home, sweaters to boost your wardrobe, filet crochet that’s practical and pretty! Let’s take a peek at some of what’s in the I Like Crochet February 2024 Issue!

Share the Love

Picture this: a charming, heart-shaped purse you can crochet in just two hours. Really! Our Lovestruck Purse is an Easy-rated pattern that uses slip stitches, single crochet and half double crochet to form an adorable heart-shaped purse, perfect for an evening out.

New and experienced crocheters will love the lacy appeal of our Loving Threads Filet Crochet Placemat that would look lovely in a set or as a centerpiece. This project is a great introduction to filet crochet if you’re ready for a new technique to add to your crochet skills toolbox.

Petal Power

Fresh flowers in the house brighten things up. But how about some flowers you don’t have to worry about watering? Poppies, asters, and daisies bloom together on our Meadow Melody Pillow. This easy weekend project is a great stashbuster, and you’ll wind up with a beautiful new pillow to brighten the room! We also have flower-themed patterns you can take or wear on the go: our Lacy Lavender Pullover and our Petal Patchwork Tote are blooming with color and style!

Retro Punch

You can go for retro and be fashion-forward with our Knotted Nostalgia Purse. This bag draws inspiration from the current trend of knotted handles, merged with the timeless elegance of basketweave stitch. Pretty, practical, and on trend! Our Retro Revival Granny Square Sweater is a chic fusion of contemporary style and vintage charm. This sweater (on our cover) features the illusion of chunky knit (with less work!) along with contemporary style and retro detail. And for those times you need an added layer of charm, make our Vintage Swirls & Squares Shawl with its classic and modern motifs that will have people doing a double-take!

Spring Standouts

Give spring cleaning new meaning with a creative use of your yarn stash. How about an easy pattern that turns your yarn scraps into design elements? You’ll love our Scrappy Spring Symphony Top with its dropped shoulders and cropped waist. This is a pattern that encourages you to explore colors and textures to create a one-of-a-kind statement piece! If you’re ready for a new cardigan, our Secret Garden Cardi is just the thing, with its bold motif and filet crochet foundation. And when you need a quick scarf pattern, our Fresh Air Striped Scarf is the perfect project to take on the go or to have on hand when you want something smaller between big projects.

Other fun projects in this issue include a practical approach to learning new stitches, a bold blanket rich with the colors of the southwest, and a delightful pillow that’s elegant in its simplicity.

Our February issue of I Like Crochet is packed with more than a dozen fabulous patterns to wear and share. Crochet a new sweater, brighten up your home, treat yourself (or a friend) to something new and lovely. Where will your hooks go first?
