In the Midwest, you never know when you’re going to get hit with another bout of unusual weather. One day it’ll be 70 degrees with a light breeze and sunny skies—and the next day you find yourself inside a snow globe as snow falls down around you in giant, wet clumps. One thing you can rely on though, is that the weather (if not slowly), does improve. Cold air, rain and snow gives way to weeks of sunshine, greener grass and beach-perfect temperatures.
While it may not feel like it yet, we know it’s coming. This issue is to help you prepare, get inspired and enjoy everything the weather has to offer (and to look good while doing it).

Start with this season’s hottest color: coral. Whatever you do, you won’t want to miss the vibrant Pineapple Filet Top featuring a bold pineapple shape with an even bolder color.

Ever wondered how crocheters can take advantage of the tie dye trend? Us too! The result is some of the coolest crochet pillows you’ve ever seen: Tie Dye Lagoon Pillows. Create three separate colorways using only black dye – the secret is changing up yarn types as you create your pillows.

Featuring lacy shawls, cardigans, scarves – and even a new purse with matching sandals – this is one of our hottest issues to date.

Happy summer crocheting,
