Your Favorite Patterns from Interweave Crochet Summer 2018!

Interweave Crochet Summer 2018 is packed full of so many fantastic patterns, it was hard for us to choose our favorites. Looking at the issue on Ravelry, there are clearly some projects that crocheters just can’t wait to make. Did your favorite from the issue make the list?

1. Time-Honored Sweater

This incredible sweater is another soon-to-be classic from Natasha Robarge. It features drop shoulder sleeves so you can spend all your time making the cabled stitch pattern and worry less about shaping. Check out the CAL Natasha has started on Ravelry. Tons of people are making this top in all kinds of yarns and loving the process! This is the top you need to make this summer!


2. Yesteryear Top

This quick-to-make lacy crop top from Mimi Alelis looks fantastic on everyone! Just check out the pictures on Ravelry and at the Instagram hashtag #InterweaveCrochet to see work from fellow stitchers. People are making this top in a range of beautiful yarns and adding their own special touches (different yarns, more length, added side panels!). It’s so much fun to make, you just might have to crochet two. (I did!) If you want a follow-up project, try one of Mimi’s other tops, the Limpet Lace Top, for more pineapple stitch.


3. Pelagic Cover-Up

Grab your favorite crochet thread this summer and work up this lovely beach wrap. Laurie Sand designed this cover-up, worked in a simple rectangle, to wear many ways. Use the arm straps to wrap and wear it as a dress, wrap it around your hips to make a lovely skirt, or lay it on your favorite beach chair for lounge time. This project is easy to pack and so repetitive, you can take it with you on all your summer travels!


4. First Light Rug

This rug is one of our favorites this summer. We can’t get enough of the raffia yarn and the join-as-you-go motifs! We loved this design from Gwen Buttke McGannon so much, we turned it into a kit; we’re glad to see it’s one of your favorites, too!


5. Basking Crossbody Bag

The Basking Crossbody Bag is Ashlyn Holmes’s first design for Interweave Crochet, and what a great design to start with! This is the project that’s making noncrocheters around the Interweave office want to pick up a crochet hook and some hemp cord. It’s simple and will work up quickly to make an excellent summer accessory with a really fun yarn button. Share this project with a newbie crocheter this summer!
