There are sheep and wool festivals to get you in the mood to work with something woolly and afternoons in the stands at a sporting event to keep you entertained while stitching a simple project. And it’s not just kids who go back to school; September is a great time for people of all ages to pick up some new skills. We asked the staff of Interweave Crochet what they’re looking forward to making this fall. Managing Editor Laura Hulslander pictures herself making a cozy afghan by a roaring fireplace.

a twist on cables

Which one is your favorite? TRADITIONAL METHOD Wheatfield Cabled Capelet By Bonnie Barker, page 10, pattern page 28 A combination of front post treble back cross and front cross stitches form the columns of these wheat cables. Each column consists of an opposing pair of cable stitches, and the repeated twists help the cable stitches pop out dramatically.

Journey Home Cardigan By Michelle Moore, page 12, pattern page 30 In the diamond cable, the combination of extended single crochets and post stitches avoids the holes that can form around cable crossings. The center diamond is an example of traveling cables, while the straight cables at the edges twist in simple columns. TRADITIONAL METHOD Pie Bake Cardigan By Natasha Robarge, page 18, pattern…
