In this issue we have a special focus on cables. Cables are the delightfully mesmerizing raised stitches that travel across fabric like rivers moving through the landscape. The skilled designers behind the projects in this issue have taken crochet cables to new levels, and most of the ten bewitching cable projects here are, in fact, named for rivers that wind through regions where the designers live. All of them show the distance that crochet cables have traveled since the Aran cable afghans of the mid-twentieth century. These cables are fresh and interesting, worked in lighter yarns that create texture without bulk. You’ll find big cables and little cables, rich crossed post-stitch cables and light traveling cables, in projects ranging from an entry-level cowl to an ambitious cardigan and pullover.For those…

Readers share in words and pictures their feedback about recent issues of Interweave Crochet.(Photos courtesy of Muna HT)TRULY HOOKED EARLY GIRL GETS THE DRESSI made the Early Girl Dress (Interweave Crochet Summer 2011).The project seemed nice, challenging, and special for my daughter to wear. I don’t work, so I have free time to do my hobby in crochet.The yarn I used is the best yarn I can use in my country, the best quality here. It’s called Himalaya, and the color seemed interesting. I found it the same weight of the yarn required in the magazine. I am not that much of an expert in yarns.I would like to make the project again with the same yarn but in a different color. It should be easier for me because I…

fall into tweed

Tweed yarn was once primarily wool spun and plied with flecks of color. Now, tweed yarns are available in a range of animal and plant fibers. The construction may be plied or chainette or singles, expanding tweed’s realm beyond fall and winter to year-round. We took a few types of tweed yarn for a spin on a hook to crochet maple leaf motifs. Here’s what we learned.1 Plymouth Yarn I Homestead TweedCONTENT: 90% wool, 10% Donegal PUT-UP: 194 yd, 175 m/3.53 oz, 100 g CONSTRUCTION: 2-ply CARE: handwash, lay flat to dry COLOR: Burnt Orange HOOK: J / 10 (6.00 mm)Saturated color and chunky flecks create a classic tweed yarn perfect for fall projects.
