Have a Warm Winter With Interweave Crochet Winter 2020
Winter is a season of contrasts. The weather gets colder, and our crocheting gets warmer. We spend our time outside shoveling driveways, sledding, and having snowball fights, then go inside to a roaring fire, hot cocoa, and steaming bowls of soup. While cold winds and gray skies reign outside, we fill our houses with cheery colors and projects made from cozy yarns. Spending time in one environment makes us appreciate the other: There’s nothing nicer than entering a warm room after being out in the cold, or as magical as emerging from a warm house into a winter wonderland.
In the Winter 2020 issue of Interweave Crochet, we explore the contrasts of winter with cool, glacier-inspired projects and heartwarming gifts. These 18 projects capture both sides of the season: icy-blue sweaters and wraps and warm, snuggly gifts. In Glacial Cool, we have 10 projects for doing your own arctic exploring. These projects are meant to capture the crystalline, cool colors of glaciers while keeping you toasty warm. The eight projects in Warmhearted Gifts include classic accessories, a colorful journal cover, and a charming stuffed snowman. With such a wide array of gifts from which to choose, you’re certain to find the perfect project for that special someone, no matter their age.
Be sure to check out the delightful notions and accessories in New and Notable and find a new book to inspire you in the Reading Nook. This issue also includes a wonderful article and project by Project Editor Susanna Tobias on how to graft Tunisian crochet; use this technique to make perfectly seamless cowls and headbands. Finally, Shelene Codner reveals how we can all add a bit more warmth to the world by sharing our handiwork with U.S. troops stationed overseas and first responders here at home through Operation Gratitude’s Handmade with Love program.
We hope the Winter 2020 issue of Interweave Crochet brings you both cool projects and warm feelings this winter season.
