oh, welcome spring!

When gathering designs for this issue, we looked for fresh approaches to technique and construction and focused our palette on those bright colors that burst forth from the gray winter landscape. Our Flash Garden story, in particular, celebrates these colors of spring. To engage your hook, Suzann Thompson explains her method for joining crochet motifs into a swath of fabric, drawing on Irish crochet techniques. (If you love the colors of her Dogwood Scarf as much as we do, you will certainly want the kit, available at shop.crochetme.com.) Sophie Wire gives the Granny a new spin with her Under the Frost Afghan, which will keep you warm as you create it, then become your go-to cover throughout the year. The gorgeous Roslind Skirt and Shrug, with their combination of Solomon’s knots…

TRULY HOOKED: HATS OFF TO BACK ISSUES I found the pattern for the Leaf Peeper Hats when perusing my old issues of Interweave Crochet (Fall 2009), and I thought they would be great Christmas presents for the kids in my life. Little did I know that I would fall in love with the pattern and make more than ten hats for both kids and adults! The pattern worked up quickly and was easy to follow. I know that I will be using it again in the future. I love the texture of the hat and especially love the thick ear flaps. The only modification that I made was for the “tween”-age kids. I used the Teen-size pattern with a size J hook, and added the brim.They were a hit at our family…

tiptoe through sock yarns

The craze for sock knitting has indie dyers and large yarn companies alike constantly producing new sock yarns, particularly in tonals and innovative color combinations. The good news for crocheters is that this weight of yarn—designated extrafine by the Craft Yarn Council—is perfect for crocheting lightweight garments with great drape and terrific stitch definition. And since they’re designed for socks, most of them are superwash, which means they’re machine washable. We gathered together a sampling of sock yarns in various fiber combinations and gave them a whirl on the crochet hook.
