A Note From the Edi­tor

Crochet! - - Crochet In The News -

The fresh air and deep col­ors of the ocean have been an in­spi­ra­tion for artists and sailors alike since the be­gin­ning of time. I have loved bring­ing you this col­lec­tion of nau­ti­cal- in­spired projects that in­clude the Boat­ing Tee, the An­chors Aweigh Tote, the Sail Sarong, Sheer South­ern Style Sun Hat, the Pop- Up Pop­pies blan­ket and the adorable Os­car the Oc­to­pus toy. These pat­terns are per­fect to make ahead and en­joy dur­ing warmer months or to bring on your sum­mer ad­ven­tures and stitch away! Os­car the Oc­to­pus was de­signed by Kati Brown and this is her first ap­pear­ance in Cro­chet!

There is an­other theme that runs through this is­sue. A lit­tle bit of Amer­i­cana in the Glory Throw by Cindy Adams, the Go Ev­ery­where Tote by Brenda Bourg and the Short Beach Pic­nic Blan­ket by Susie Allen.

Need some in­spi­ra­tion to learn some new tricks this sum­mer? The amaz­ing Rose Gar­den Shawl puts your new broom­stick lace skills to work as de­scribed in the Learn It! Do It! ar­ti­cle and project combo by Brenda Bourg.

Whether you plan to kick back and en­joy a gor­geous sun­set over the ocean, the plains or the moun­tains, it's time to breathe fresh air into your cro­chet port­fo­lio. I hope these pat­terns in­spire your next cre­ation! C!
