If you are a digital subscriber, you get to see the great patterns in the June issue of Crochet World before folks on the newsstands. Let’s take a peak inside the issue to see what all you get.
Learn how to make some fun slippers with an interesting construction in our Beginner’s Luck section (FYI: we have a little how to of those slippers here). Make some fun wrist rests for comfort while working on the computer. But heck they are so cute just make them to have some cute little stuffies! We have a lovely lacy, stitch sampler style summer top for you in the Touch of Style section. Learn how to make simple star stitches and split stitches with a baby blanket in the Learn a Stitch section. Then finally some interestingly stitched scrap dishcloths in the Scrap Delight section.
Our threadies will find several projects in the Just Threads chapter. If you aren’t into working with thread, making some small jewelry pieces might get you some experience with thread and give you the gumption to tackle something a bit larger like the colorful doilies that round out the chapter.
Summer is a great time to give back and donate to your favorite organizations, charities, hospitals, hospices and care facilities, or for loved ones in need of a little special something. Wrap a person in comfort with a beautiful shawl. Stitch up some hats for cancer patients or to gift to homeless shelters for when the cold weather comes in again. Create blankets to wrap up in warmth and love and to know that someone cares. Creating little dolls to gift to hospitals and littles in need of something soft and huggable.
We round out the issue with some colorful stitch samplers. Sit down and test your skills as you work through several stitch patterns in each project to create something truly unique. This style of project will hold your interest and keep you on your toes while, possibly, learning something new at the same time.
We hope you enjoy the issue and encourage others to subscribe or grab a copy when it hits the newsstands at the end of April.
