We love crocheting in winter. The short days and long nights beg for nestling in a cozy chair with hooks and yarn, creating fabrics that warm you as they grow. Winter is an excellent time to expand our repertoire of crochet techniques. To this end, each project in this issue features a different crochet method, with some combining diverse techniques in the same project—for instance, the cables and lace of Lisa Naskrent’s Feathery Scarf. Learn crochet illusions with Darla Fanton as she guides you through this remarkable method that uses just one stitch (single crochet), working in varying loops to create fabric that looks different depending on your point of view. After you work through her method in Beyond the Basics, you’ll be ready to work up the Mirage Scarf and…

Plastic wrap, wire, glass globes and chandelier bits unite through crochet in Resonantia by artist Cayce Lee. Learn more, Page 8. PRODUCTS | REVIEWS | BOOKS A gathering of goods and interviews selected just for you. EOLANDE SHAWLETTE I finished the Eolande Shawlette by Kathryn White (Interweave Crochet Summer 2014). I entered it in the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival and won a third prize. To keep myself on track when working the border, I marked where each of the stitch repeats began and ended on a copy of the stitch diagram. That way, I knew that when I got to a particular point along the edge of the shawl I should be starting a different stitch repeat. This is my first big thread project, so I'm pleased. Kathryn White is a genius. Cheers, Amy D. Salem, Oregon I…

a mind-set of making

The crochet sculpture suspended from the ceiling of the gallery calls for a certain amount of yogic activity. The three columns and central formation that make up Resonantia require a view from afar, but the smaller, glimmering elements beckon you to move forward and look closely. How are those air plants suspended? How is the crochet both apparent and transparent? Is there a perspective that must be seen? The answers, in order: glass globes, plastic wrap, and look down. “For the past several years, I have been working on a material exploration centered on fibers and light, searching for combinations of materials that interact with light in interesting ways,” says Cayce Lee, the artist who created Resonantia. “This research led me to play with plastic wrap, which was an ideal medium…
