The middle of summer is meant for late-night barbecues, outdoor concerts, family dinners lit by firelight and tiki torches. It’s meant for time outdoors and time spent nurturing relationships of those closest to you. It’s meant for busyness in the best way, but that doesn’t mean you won’t have time to sneak in a little bit of your favorite hobby: crocheting! To make things easier, we’ve put together all the patterns you could possibly need for the end of the summer and early fall in this latest issue.

Starting with a set of patterns featuring golden hues, the Marigold Standard collection includes a cozy cabled cardigan, adorable crochet clutches for all your summer essentials – plus, beautiful blankets and even a pillow. Gear up for the season ahead by making some of our favorite staple pieces, including the adorable Easygoing Crochet Tank which pairs effortlessly with your favorite pair of jeans and boots.

Wrap it all up by exploring the trendy patterns featured in the Under Wraps section. From a cute wrapped tee, to a gorgeous wrap-around skirt, you’ll discover pieces that will make wonderful additions to your wardrobe.

Happy crocheting,
Caitlin Eaton
