Check Out the Spring Issue of Interweave Crochet!
If you've been waiting all this long, cold, snowy winter for the fresh pop of spring, your wait is over.
The Spring 2011 issue of Interweave Crochet is bursting with fresh, inspired crochet. We actually did the photoshoot for this issue before Christmas, and it's taken all of my willpower not to give you a sneak peek before now. Because I knew that when you were looking out your window at yet another monster snowfall, nothing would cheer you more than Tram Nguyen's Cupcake Sweater. This pretty cardigan is as fresh as new green leaves and is bursting with Tunisian crochet ingenuity. (Cupcakes are bonus.)
This sweater is just one of the sweet temptations in this issue. We made a special effort to reach out to the little ones in this issue, with patterns for boys and girls, as well as tools and yarn perfect for beginning crocheters. And we tucked in plenty of spring garments for grown-ups.
