FIRST ROW

Crochet World - - First Row -

Per­haps more than any other time of the year, this is the best time to be a cro­cheter. The weather has turned colder, giv­ing us an­other rea­son to cro­chet a warm and chunky cowl or a cozy throw! With the cooler tem­per­a­tures most of us stay in­doors, af­ford­ing us the op­por­tu­nity for more cro­chet time. And with the hol­i­days around the cor­ner, we’re check­ing our list of pro­jects we want to make to give as gifts!

We’ve packed the Cro­chet for the Hol­i­days chap­ter full of pro­jects to make just in the nick of time. (Pun in­tended!) Keep­sake or­na­ments, a pretty tree skirt or the Snowy Evening Afghan cro­cheted quickly with 2 strands of worsted-weight yarn, warm and cozy throws, and a fun rug with a twist are sure to add a fes­tive touch to your home this holiday sea­son.

We’ve fea­tured a bunch of great gift ideas for the whole fam­ily in the Last­Minute Gifts chap­ter. You’ll find quick and easy gift ideas, in­clud­ing cuffed booties and a slouchy beanie sized for the en­tire fam­ily, kitchen scrub­bies, a fes­tive hot pad, a cute snow­man bas­ket to fill with home­made good­ies and more!

Our up-front fea­tures con­tinue the holiday theme with a set of coast­ers, a pil­low with a coun­try Christ­mas theme, and even a sleepy puppy all decked out in his pa­ja­mas wait­ing for Santa!

So grab your cro­chet hook, make your list and check it twice! This is­sue is full of pro­jects that are just wait­ing to be stitched up and dis­played in your home or given as cov­eted gifts!

Happy Cro­chet­ing!
