Welcome Love of Crochet
Welcome to fresh spring breezes! We’ve gathered a bouquet of crochet goodness in this first issue of the new year. We have an array of shawls that use a variety of crochet techniques—all of which are perfect for those days that start off cool and warm up.
And because we know you don’t always love seaming things up and tucking in ends, we’ve gathered up a miscellany of seamless projects. A set of bowls using the sturdy center single crochet will get you started. Then move on up to a gorgeous lacy tunic, a shell, and a bolero, plus a pair of socks.
We have a wee flock of projects for little ones: a blanket and a hat, plus a toy train engine—the first in our train series that will roll out in the coming issues. From fancy wear to everyday items, we’ve got you covered with twenty projects to ease you into the year.
This issue also marks a fresh start for the team here at F+W. Love of Crochet is now being created by the same team that brings you Interweave Crochet and Crochetscene: Marcy Smith, editor; Dana Bincer, assistant editor (you’ll find three of her designs in this issue!); and Susanna Tobias, project editor. We are delighted to be curating the interesting and accessible crochet designs that you have come to love in this magazine.
We hope to make your experience as a reader and crocheter even better. Check out the Love of Crochet Spring 2016 preview and stay tuned as we evolve with you this year. Then download your own copy of Love of Crochet Spring 2016.
