Find delicate details and funky fashion in this issue!
Dear Crochet Friend,
It’s the details that make a project pop. Eye-catching stitches, interesting textures, mesmerizing patterns. We are all about the details in this August issue of I Like Crochet. Delicate lace. Bold stripes. A little embroidery, and a lot of tassels. Why not? It’s still summer, and it’s time to have some fun. Let’s go crochet something new!
August can be a hot month, but it’s also a reminder that cooler weather will be on the way soon. For those of us still clinging to the dreams of summer, we have plenty of inspiration. Our Ainsley Top was inspired by the beauty of a summer meadow. Each element of this graceful top lets the avid crocheter enjoy a broad variety of crochet techniques. You’ll love the drape of this top with plenty of lace accented with — you got it — more lace.
For the adventurous beginners among us, we offer the Alpenglow Cardigan. This shawl-collar, open-front cardigan features a sunset motif and decorative embroidery details. Let your spirit soar as you create your own cardigan.
Wrap yourself in lace and tassels with our Sandstone Shawl. This project, rated easy/intermediate, uses yarn of different weights to create a lovely textured, lacy look. The tassels break with tradition and run down the center of the shawl for flowing, carefree look.
The decorative detail, wooden beads, and casual tassels give our Boho Medallion Bag a laid-back look. This eclectic cross-body bag can be finished in a weekend, ready for your next adventure.
Romantic Layers for Fall
We know that summer will soon come to an end — but that doesn’t mean the end of fun projects to celebrate the changing seasons! Our Skylark Fringe Poncho welcomes the coming of fall with exuberant bobbles, fun-loving fringe, and rich texture. Your hooks will get a workout making this poncho, but the end result will be so worth the effort!
Bobbles and buds adorn our oversized Marilie Bobble Cardigan. You’ll work this project in flat panels and then seam it. You are granted full creative license to sprinkle embroidered flower motifs wherever you see fit. Make this cardigan uniquely yours!
Let your mind wander to a late summer meadow, heading for the crisp days of fall. Our Nightingale Vest sings a song of a time when things were simpler. Modern lines combine with wistful nostalgia to create a layered garment that’s comfortable and versatile. You won’t want to head out on an adventure without this vest! And wherever your adventures take you, relax in comfort with our Briar Blanket. Textured stitches give this blanket a lovely look and feel. It’s as at home on the sofa as it is at a picnic in a clearing in the woods.
When you need to keep the chill of your shoulders, you need a wrap. Make yourself something bold and new. Our Hayden Fringe Wrap is a lightweight project that mixes textures to create a strong statement. Get ready for people to ask you where you got that stunning shawl!
Who’s ready for some Tunisian crochet? Tune up your Tunisian skills with the Leighton Patchwork Scarf. Mix and match the sections of this this fun sampler project to create a one-of-a-kind scarf in the color palette that calls to you.
Got granny stitch? Once you’re solid on the granny stitch front, branch out from granny squares and make the Arley Cardi. This is the perfect beginner cardigan for anyone who loves granny stitch. Two hexagons come together to form one snazzy sweater.
Don’t let the bold plaid pattern of our Amber Plaid Throw “throw” you. There’s no weaving required here, just an array of squares you’ll make in herringbone half double crochet for a rich texture. Make your squares on the go and then put them all together using mattress stitch. Fringe on the short sides gives this blanket a cozy feel.
You can’t have too many throw pillows (really!). Your guests will hardly believe this Soraya Striped Woven Pillow is actually a crochet project — it looks like the fabric came off a weaver’s loom. The secret is in the combination of yarns crocheted together to get this fabulous texture. Rated easy, you can probably finish this project in a week. Here’s another throw pillow project — the Peyton Pillow. This Bohemian dream throw pillow is worked with V-puff stitch for a braided look. The big, bold tassels give this pillow extra personality!
Go anywhere is Bohemian style with our Wanderlust Shawl. This is a project for crocheters of all skills levels, and features an eclectic palette of earth tones, bold, airy stripes, and exuberant tassels. Layer this shawl on for your next day of wandering.
Our August issue of I Like Crochet is fairly bursting with rich, romantic projects that are heavy on detail and delight. There’s something here for crocheters of all skill levels. Where will you start your next crochet adventure?
