Top 5 Ravelry Favorites from Interweave Crochet Fall 2018
Fall weather is finally settling in here in northern Colorado, and we’re all breaking out our shawls and boots and looking through our project queues to decide what we want to make this season. If you need to fill your autumn queue, look no further than Interweave Crochet Fall 2018! This gorgeous issue is packed with projects perfect for snuggling up with at home or wearing out on the town.
Read through the list to find out which projects from this fantastic issue you guys are loving on Ravelry (hint: it’s mostly crochet cardigans).
1. Dashing Cardigan
The runaway hit from the fall issue is the stunning cabled Dashing Cardigan by garment-design whiz Shannon Mullett-Bowlsby. The cables are created with a new shadow-stitch technique that makes neat-yet-sinuous cables without any of the usual holes and gaps at the back and sides of the post stitches. Check out Shannon’s awesome tutorial on this new stitch, then get your hook in this project ASAP!
2. Mondaine Shawl
Your #2 favorite from this issue is our lovely cover project, the Mondaine Shawl. This perfectly autumnal shawl by Jane Howorth uses a simple two-row pattern to create major visual impact. If you’re not familiar with triple treble stitches, read through our tutorial that walks you through this crochet decrease, then get the kit and get started on what’s sure to become your go-to fall accessory.
3. Worldly Cardigan
A cute cardigan is a must-have for fall and winter. Throw on the Worldly Cardigan by Amy Gunderson over a dress and tights or jeans and boots for a sophisticated look that still keeps you cozy. This is a great project for first-time garment makers because the stitches are simple and the shaping is minimal. The herringbone half double crochet creates flattering vertical lines, and the pockets add a fun and practical touch.
4. Plucky Cardigan
Cardigans are all the rage with you guys this fall! The fun and funky Plucky Cardigan by Juliette Bezold combines cables and lace for an updated take on the classic cardi. Cable-and-lace panels elongate and flatter the body, and the short sleeves and shawl collar add a modern touch.
5. Poised Cardigan
Just one “heart” behind the Plucky Cardigan is Natasha Robarge’s gorgeous Poised Cardigan. The classic houndstooth patterning (one of my all-time favorites) is created with two colors of yarn and a combination of single crochet, double crochet, and front post treble stitches. Whether you wear it to the office or on the weekend, you’ll look chic without sacrificing comfort!
