The weather is warm, the sun is shining and backyards are ready for all this season has to offer – homemade meals by campfires, nights spent chasing fireflies and evenings spent sipping cooled lemonade on the outside patio. Before we know it, fall will be knocking at our door. Until then, it’s time to soak in all the beauty this season has to offer, as we also prepare for what’s ahead.
Featuring 19+ projects for summer and the fall, this issue is just what you need to keep those hooks crocheting during these next few months. Give yourself a break this summer and tackle some easy, beginner friendly patterns that are simple to memorize and great for on the go. From the light and lacy Beginner Paradise Shawls to a cozy beginner beanie and a gorgeous linen stitch scarf, you won’t know which one to start first.
If you’re a fan of the chevron stitch, then you’ll love the chevron collection featuring five addictive patterns. Starting with a beautiful bag that’s perfect for summer essentials and ending with a cheerfully colored blanket that’s rich with texture, we are obsessed with how these projects turned out.
Next, celebrate the upcoming change in seasons with three scarves that are going to be a hit this autumn. The Mixed Motifs Triangular Scarf is just the challenge your hooks have been looking for with ten different crochet motifs and a festive fringed end – you’ll love how effortlessly it pairs with a classic denim jacket.
P.S. Don’t miss my favorite pattern from this issue (the Wild Rose Pillow). It’s just what your living room has been searching for!
Happy hooking, Caitlin
