Interweave Crochet Summer 2018 Lookbook

Ready for a summer getaway? Escape into your crochet with the beautiful projects from the summer issue of Interweave Crochet. When we realized our summer photo shoot was scheduled for early February, we thought we should probably plan to stay indoors for it. And thank goodness we did! We woke up the day of the photo shoot to a winter wonderland of snow and ice. Challenging (and icy) days make me appreciate having a wonderful team, and the team for this magazine was spectacular. We were all in a summer mind-set, even with the snow!

The projects in this issue have had us ready for warmer temperatures for what feels like forever, so we’re very glad summer is finally here. Take your crochet out onto the grass and add some color to your day! You won’t believe the amazing projects in our Summer Blues story—all of which are dyed blue. Check out the articles on each dyeing technique to learn how to finish off your projects in style.

We also feature designs made from fibers grown in the tropics, so you can experiment with this summer trend and use raffia, hemp, and abaca to make incredible crochet projects. And no summer issue would be complete without some lace. We have three lace projects that are so beautiful, they’ll take your breath away.

But if you’re really looking for an escape, you’ll love our designs with a nautical theme. Find a beautiful blue bikini, cute swimsuit cover-ups, a pair of shorts, a summer wrap, and an incredible beach tote. You’ll have all you need to escape into summer!

This issue is packed full of innovative projects for wherever your summer adventures take you. Thank you for bringing crochet on your journey.

Happy stitching!
