I found a cool feature on Ravelry that allows you to see how many patterns you “favorited” from each issue/book in your library. I sat stunned as I realized how many I loved from Interweave Crochet 2014. This was a great year! The styles in each issue range from vintage 1950s to glam camp wear to rustic home décor. There really is something for everyone, or in my case, dozens of somethings! If you need more convincing, check out Jill Wright’s Paige Hoodie or Linda Skuja’s Convergence Top and then make yourself Darla J. Fanton’s Aegean Dreams Throw. Seriously, I “favorited” at least 20 patterns, and now they’re all available in one collection!

I love every issue that released in 2015, so I can’t wait to get my hands on the Interweave Crochet 2015 Collection Download. The Fall 2015 Issue features a project theme of filet and pineapple stitch, two of my very favorite techniques. Even if I don’t get around to making any of those projects, I love looking at them for inspiration. But I’m most hooked on Interweave Crochet Summer 2015. I love every single project in that issue—the Fresh Catch Dress, the Seaside Dress, the Summer Marsala Tunic, they’re all so beautiful! But it’s the wedding-themed projects I love the most. I’m planning my wedding for next year and can’t wait to include some crochet flowers or lace-covered stones! I’ve worn that issue out, and I can’t wait to get my digital collection for all of 2015!

My favorite collection download is the Interweave Crochet 2012 Collection Download. In 2012, I probably wouldn’t have thought about crocheting a garment, but if I had seen these garments, I might have tried. Both the Dana Cowl Pullover and the Sweetgrass Top have lines to flatter any size and shape, and they can be made in any color, which is pretty awesome. Personally, I’d probably stick with the golden/green used in the Dana Cowl Pullover from Interweave Crochet Winter 2013, but I’d definitely go with something darker for the Sweetgrass Top from Interweave Crochet Spring 2012, perhaps a purplish blue. Who knows? The choices are endless!
