Interweave Crochet Winter 2016 featured many beautiful projects, but the reader favorite is the Tumult Sweater by Jill Wright. This sweater is perfect for holiday get-togethers where you want to show off what you can create with just a hook and some yarn. Check out Ravelry to see some beautiful reader versions of this sweater.
The Water Lily Shawl by Lisa Naskrent was the most popular project from Interweave Crochet Spring 2016, our birthday issue celebrating TEN years of Interweave Crochet! Wow! From a spectacular project in the magazine itself to beautiful photos of over 30 finished projects on Ravelry, this shawl is definitely a winner.
Your favorite project from the Summer 2016 issue is the Limpet Lace Top by Mimi Alelis, a beautiful top that’s great for hot summer days. This top can be dressed up with a skirt or dressed down with jeans; either way, it’s sure to be a wardrobe staple.
Interweave Crochet Fall 2016 was all about cables, and the intricate cables in the Passaic Pullover by Anastasia Popova won everyone’s hearts. If you like cables, this is the top for you. It’s a bit challenging, but we’re confident you can handle it and sure you’ll love the finished project.
Love of Crochet
Love of Crochet Spring 2016 featured the popular Garden Skirt by Linda Dean. Worked from side to side and trimmed with a lovely flower edging, this skirt is the perfect addition to your spring wardrobe. Use a light and airy yarn and you won’t want to take this skirt off!
The Flutter-By Poncho by Sue Perez graced the cover of Love of Crochet Summer 2016 and was your favorite project from the issue. Size 3 thread and join-as-you-go motifs work together to make this pretty summer cover up. Make it in your favorite color or in white (as shown) to go with any summer outfit.
Ponchos were a very popular accessory for 2016!
The On the Fringe Poncho by Karen McKenna was the hottest item in Love of Crochet Fall 2016. If you want a simple poncho that will add a touch of glam to any outfit, this is the one for you. Worked in a yarn with a bit of sparkle, this poncho will brighten up any drab fall day.
The Snowflake Shawl by Natasha Robarge was the beauty of our Love of Crochet Winter 2016 issue. Twenty-six hexagons and six half-hexagons—that’s all it takes to create this stunning showpiece. Drape it around your shoulders for a lacy snowflake look.
We have had so much fun crocheting with you this year. Wait until you see what 2017 has in store!
