Yarn Spotlight: Tiptoe Through Sock Yarns
by Marcy SmithThe craze for sock knitting has indie dyers and large yarn companies alike constantly producing new sock yarns, particularly in tonals and innovative color combinations. The good news for crocheters is that this weight of yarn–designated extrafine by the Craft Yarn Council–is perfect for crocheting lightweight garments with great drape and terrific stitch definition. And since they’re designed for socks, most of them are superwash, which means they’re machine washable. We gathered together a sampling of sock yarns in various fiber combinations and gave them a whirl on the crochet hook.
Loose Ends: The ’70s Come Knocking
by Vickie Howell
You know the saying “What’s old is new again”? Well, these days that rings true for many things in the yarn world. From the ’70s, one trend is back and stronger than ever: the fiber wall hanging. That inspired this issue’s project: a Wee Woven Wall Hanging. Double-crochet stitches create “bars” to latch fringe around, and half double crochet worked in the front loop adds textural effect. Add simple fringe pieces in different colors and weights of yarn at varying intervals on this perfect little canvas.
Everyday Crochet
by Kathryn Vercillo
Alisa Erkes lives with a rare autoimmune disease called Behcet’s disease. Because her symptoms prevent her from working a traditional nine-to-five job, she turned to crochet to stay productive. After a time, she found that she could sell her afghans on Etsy. Not only that, but crochet helps her heal.
