FIRST ROW

Crochet World - - First Row -

I cro­chet all year long, but there is some­thing about the first cool days of au­tumn that makes me want to up my cro­chet time! Maybe it’s know­ing “sweater weather” is just around the cor­ner. Or maybe it’s the up­com­ing hol­i­day sea­son and my de­sire to make some­thing by hand for those I love. What­ever the rea­son, I like noth­ing bet­ter than snug­gling into my fa­vorite spot, sur­round­ing my­self with yarn, hooks and all the pat­terns I want to make over the next few months! I get all my projects queued up in the or­der I want to cro­chet them, but I al­ways find my­self shuf­fling and re­ar­rang­ing them as my ex­cite­ment builds be­cause I can’t wait to dig into the next new project!

As you look through this is­sue, you might find your­self mak­ing a list of projects too. This is­sue is packed with great projects for the up­com­ing sea­son with its vi­brant au­tum­nal pal­ette. In The Col­ors of Au­tumn chap­ter you’ll find projects you’ll love mak­ing and us­ing in your home or giv­ing as gifts. With two beau­ti­ful afghans, a gor­geous thread ta­ble run­ner in rich fall sun­set col­ors, a quick and easy rug, a cute lit­tle owl and more, you’ll have a hard time de­cid­ing which project to make first!

In the Stash-Bust­ing Cro­chet chap­ter, we’ve in­cluded projects that will use up your yarn stash in style. Co­or­di­nat­ing your scraps into color fam­i­lies and mak­ing one or both of the fab­u­lous afghans fea­tured will not only re­duce your stash but will make you proud of your ac­com­plish­ment too! We’ve also in­cluded a unique her­ring­bone-pat­terned scarf and a cute lit­tle girl’s jacket just per­fect for us­ing up left­over worsted-weight yarn!

You’ll find a great va­ri­ety of projects in our up-front fea­tures as well, in­clud­ing a pretty pon­cho, a felted beret, a col­or­ful cowl and more.

So make your list, grab your cro­chet hook and some yarn, and dig in!

Happy Cro­chet­ing!
