Note From the Editor

Spring is upon us in all its glory and so is color. After a drab and dreary winter it is about time. I wanted to bring all the colors of spring into your home, as well as give you the opportunity to maybe try out some styles of crochet that you havenít tried in the past. Several patterns in this issue are dedicated to how to use crochet to create an image on your piece. Colorwork images can be worked in several techniques in crochet: corner-tocorner, tapestry, stranded colorwork, filet and intarsia crochet. We bring in a little bit of each with fabulous projects for all around the house.

We have projects that embrace the concepts associated with spring, like flowers and Easter, as well as the colors of spring. One of my favorite ways to explore color combinations is with granny squares. But we decided to take things one step further and see what all can be created if we take the traditional granny stitch of a 3-double crochet group and work it in a variety of ways. The results are just mesmerizing and we hope you enjoy exploring the usage of the stitch group as well as all the glorious color combinations.
