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!
