The August issue of Crochet World is now available digitally here and will be available on the newsstands June 27th. With over 20 designs, it is always difficult for me to narrow down just a few projects to feature on the blog. So remember you can see all the designs on the Crochet World website.
This issue features projects that are perfect summertime companions for travelling and vacationing. Everything in the Done in One chapter is super-portable as you only need one ball of yarn to make each project!
I have Gwen McGannon’s Sabrina Shawl on my “to do” list. It is so pretty in Lion Brand’s Shawl in a Ball. I love how the long color repeats melt from one color to another.
In our Something Old Made New! chapter we have taken traditional crochet techniques and given them an updated look. Of course, Margret Willson’s Tunisian Argyle Throw on the cover is a show stopper!
Equally stunning is Jennifer Raymond’s Blooming Broomstick Lace Throw.
And the Fan-Dango Shrug by Annette Stewart uses a variation of the bullion stitch that is not only super-pretty, but practical for overly air-conditioned buildings. Annette’s tutorial walks you through her variation of this traditional stitch.
If you love thread you’ll find the quick and easy Floral Fling doily just right for summer stitching. It makes a great gift too!
But, if you are looking for a project to enjoy and take your time making, Gemma Owen’s Linen & Lace Table Runner is stunning! Make it as large or small as you need. Crochet the motifs first and then join them later when you have enough made.
I love the ease of NTmaglia’s Net Lace Top. What a perfect top for summer!
Of course, you’ll find items for your home in this issue too, including this fun set of Zigzag Baskets!
And last but not least, you’ll find this cute and cuddly Roarrry Dinosaur pillow just perfect for your little dinosaur-loving friends!
