A Note From the Editor
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.
