FIRST ROW

Crochet World - - First Row -

As each sea­son un­folds, I am al­ways amazed how my cro­chet projects re­flect the time of year and what is go­ing on in my life. Dur­ing the last days of spring and as sum­mer ap­proaches, I spend more time out­doors gar­den­ing and trav­el­ing, but that doesn’t mean I put my cro­chet hooks away! Not at all! It just means I take my projects with me and en­joy cro­chet­ing out­doors! I hope this is­sue will in­spire you to take your cro­chet along with you as you en­joy the warmer weather. Choose from one of the smaller projects in this is­sue, such as the All Squares Dish­cloth Set, our Begin­ner’s Luck fea­ture. Make some pretty Pas­tel Pot Hold­ers and use up your size 10 cro­chet thread. Or add a fun touch to your sum­mer wardrobe with the adorable Oh Snap! Flow­ers.

In the Lighten Up! chap­ter you’ll find five fab­u­lous fash­ion ac­ces­sories that will add a pop of color to your sum­mer out­fits. I es­pe­cially love the Moe­bius Wrap in brilliant blues, which is per­fect for cool sum­mer evenings. The Open­work Cardi is on my “to do” list; ev­ery­one needs a cardi­gan like this to round out their warmweather wardrobe. And the Seashell Scarf is an­other must-make!

In Sum­mer­time Cro­chet we fea­ture sev­eral fun projects per­fect for the home and en­ter­tain­ing. Make up a bunch of our To­tally Tubu­lar Coast­ers for your next out­door get-to­gether for a fun touch. Cro­cheted to mimic pool floats in the shape of a rub­ber duck and pink flamingo, they are sure be a con­ver­sa­tion starter! Cro­chet a set of the Flo­ral Nap­kin Rings to add a sum­mery touch to your ta­ble. The Tur­tle Shell Game based on the age-old game of chance is sure to be pop­u­lar with kids and adults alike. Who could re­sist play­ing with these cute tur­tles look­ing for the hid­den gold­fish?

In our Fea­tures sec­tion, we’ve in­cluded 2 col­or­ful throws, a set of nest­ing bas­kets and a stun­ning doily. With over 20 projects in this is­sue, we’re sure your sum­mer will be filled with cro­chet!

And don’t for­get to look for this is­sue’s give­away as we con­tinue to cel­e­brate 40 years of Cro­chet World!

Happy Cro­chet­ing!
