August 2023: Table of Contents

Summer is in full swing, but before we know it, we’ll be swapping iced lemonades for hot ciders and warm cardigans for tanks and tees — it’s that in-between-seasons period, where the days are hot but the nights are cool. This new issue is packed with weather friendly patterns fit for finnicky weather; plus plenty of new projects for the fall season ahead. Start with the layer on the style section featuring six august-to-autumn pieces that will take you effortlessly from hot and humid to cool and cozy. The Luisa Scalloped Filet Crochet Topper is the perfect piece to start crocheting now; it’s easily layered, pairs great with either jeans, shorts or a skirt and has delicate scalloped trim and edges. The Anisa Mesh Tunic and Adeline Crew Sweater are also great projects to have in your corner and are destined to be next on your to-make list.
Looking for a dressier option with a vintage touch? The Phoebe Polka Dot Dress is an adorable design modeled after the iconic shift dress of the 60s. You’ll love it for summer and can seamlessly transition it to fall wear with some tights and boots. If you’re hungry for more mod-inspired projects, explore our Oh My Mod section to your heart’s content. You’ll discover a black-and-white purse, a roomy retro bag and a sophisticated sweater vest.

And finally, add some flair to your fall with fresh accessories (including a glow-in-the-dark crochet keychain). From a gorgeous C2C scarf and a cozy basket weave hat, to an incredible crochet hood that transforms before your eyes and a cozy hood that can transform before your eyes (wear it as a cowl, a dickie and even a hood), these projects are all must makes for the season ahead.

Happy crocheting,
