My Crochet Queue is Growing
I simply cannot crochet fast enough to keep up with my queue. It seems to be growing at an alarming rate—especially now that I have seen the new fall Interweave Crochet. Surely I am not the only one with this particular problem.
But I may have added more projects from this issue than from any previous single issue. First there is the Sally Beth Bag. It’s plaid. I’m slightly obsessed with plaid. The alternating squares of color are created with tapestry crochet and then the yellow and pink lines are added using surface slip stitch embroidery. This is a great way to do a little stashbusting.
The ripple pattern fabric and beautiful collar of the Betty Pullover immediately caught my attention. Worked in a cotton and merino blend yarn and with short sleeves, this sweater would be perfect year-round. I think I will make it in a deep blue.
The stripes and wide button band gave the Don’s Day Off Cardigan a spot on my queue. The problem is that I don’t really have a guy to crochet it for. Oh well, it looks like I’ll have to make this comfy sweater for myself. Maybe I’ll substitute some feminine colors for a nice contrast with the silhouette.
And I always need a new crochet hat for my collection. The Flash Flap Hat would work up quickly in a bulky yarn and would be warm and comfortable as well. The casual slouchy look, pompom, earflaps, and buttoned flap ensure you won’t take this winter hat too seriously which is a great attitude when you are staring out at four foot snow drift.
These patterns will be moving to the top of my queue. Which one do you think I should crochet first? But these are by no means the only fabulous patterns in Interweave Crochet Fall 2015. Download or order your copy today!
