A Note From the Ed­i­tor

Crochet! - - Contents - BY ELLEN GO RM LE Y

In this Au­tumn is­sue we are de­part­ing from our tra­di­tional gar­ment and ac­ces­sories and fo­cus­ing on a peren­nial fa­vorite of cro­cheters! There are FIVE beau­ti­ful blan­kets in this is­sue. Tunisian cro­chet, cir­cu­lar and row pat­terns are all rep­re­sented. The five pat­terns in­clude the Tunisian Bas­ket-Weave Baby Blan­ket, the Aspen Gold Afghan, the Cher­ished Ca­bles Blan­ket, the Rus­tic Charm Blan­ket and the Twi­light Flower Throw.

The Tunisian Bas­ket-Weave Baby Blan­ket is a gor­geous and easy- to- mem­o­rize pat­tern from Dora Ohren­stein. Dora teaches the tech­nique in the Learn It! Do It! fea­ture. This blan­ket has ex­cel­lent drape and would be beau­ti­ful in a range of col­ors. Change the color to a more earthy tone and it would make an ex­cel­lent lap robe for an older adult. The Aspen Gold Afghan and the Rus­tic Charm Blan­ket are won­der­ful ex­am­ples of au­tumn col­ors and sea­sonal yarns. Al­ready have an over­abun­dance of blan­kets? The is­sue still is full of beau­ti­ful projects such as gar­ments and ac­ces­sories in­clud­ing hats, cowls and wraps. Check out the lay­er­ing po­ten­tial and com­fort of the eye- catch­ing Turn­ing Leaf Vest.

I hope you en­joy this au­tumn is­sue, and “ooh” and “aah” at all the gor­geous va­ri­ety that cro­chet has to of­fer.
