Two new titles came in this week, speaking directly to crocheters: the Summer 2014 issue of Interweave Crochet, and a new book, Reversible Color Crochet.
Interweave Crochet came in this week full of ideas for summertime stitching.
With a focus on openwork and lace, this issue of Interweave Crochet features patterns for tops, shawls, jewelry, and more, including a tutorial on joining to crochet in rounds.
Laurinda Reddig’s Reversible Color Crochet shows a new technique for what might be described as crocheted intarsia. Reddig’s fabric, though, is identical on both sides, without the messy-looking wrong-side you can get with knitted intarsia.
Reddig gives clear guidance for how to work with multiple colors at once, and shares patterns for quilt-blocks that can be combined for unique crocheted afghans.
Come by the shop for inspiration, and to plan your next crochet project!
