This spring, everyone seems to be emerging from their cocoon, ready to warm their wings in the sun and get busy exploring! After a year where many of us were cooped up inside, this summer is looking to be one where we will savor the season—and all it has to offer—more than ever.
While we were putting together the June 2021 issue, we thought about how much fun it is to go to the beach, shop at farmer’s markets, dine al fresco, or travel. We also considered how much we enjoy light, easy crochet projects that are just as much fun to make as they are to wear. And who among us hasn’t wanted to spruce up our home décor in the past year?
With that in mind, we are excited to share the latest issue of I Like Crochet with you. Join us as we explore tie-dyeing, bright pillows and accessories inspired by indigenous cultures, breezy shawls, scarves, and cardigans—we even have one resembling an opening cocoon—and the sweetest one-hour bracelets you’ve ever seen!
The June 2021 issue of I Like Crochet has all that and more. And it’s just the beginning. Our digital library includes hundreds of patterns, along with video tutorials and so much more right at your fingertips. Whether you want to make yourself something that goes with a summer afternoon ice cream cone or a cute kid’s coat for a chilly night, your I Like Crochet Gold Club Charter Membership is the place to go.
One summer essential we can’t get enough of is the La Jolla Swoncho from Andee Graves. Andee has a keen interest in the “magic” of creating something beautiful from hook and string, and has definitely worked her magic on this light and airy ‘swoncho’—a poncho with ¾ sleeves. It’s just the right topper for a cool evening or a breezy beach day.
This delicate swoncho falls flatteringly over shoulders and torso. It is worked in the easy-to-learn lopsided lace stitch pattern, starting with a stacked rows foundation formed into a ring. Work continues top down in turned rounds, then armholes are joined and sleeves are worked in the round from each armhole. This gorgeous pattern pairs perfectly with jeans and a tee, although it would look just as fabulous with your favorite sundress. It’s a weekend project—easy to make more than one to wear with different outfits and any occasion.
This issue also features two dyeing tutorials. Have you ever dyed your crochet projects? It’s so much fun and adds an extra level of uniqueness to your creations. Even if you’ve never dyed before, our tutorials will help make it easy—and summer is the perfect time to dye outdoors. The Darya Dip-Dye Tutorial walks you step-by-step through the process of dip dyeing the squares to make the gorgeous Darya Cover-up. You’ll also learn Two Ways to Tie-Dye, a tutorial for tie-dyeing the Tie-Dye Lagoon Pillows. Both are fun weekend projects for adventurous beginners.
You’ll find plenty of other quick and easy projects to make your summer more fun—and flirty—like the Botanical Nori Flip Flops pattern, which also comes with a tutorial. This darling design takes an ordinary pair of flip flops from functional to fabulous in less than a day. The crochet flowers and leaves require minimal sewing as you crochet them right onto the straps.
The June issue of I Like Crochet includes detailed instructions and full-color pictures for all of these patterns, along with a hand-picked selection of some of our favorite summer patterns.
