Step out to greet spring in style with the 20 perfect projects tucked inside this issue of Interweave Crochet. While the earth stirs from its deep winter slumber, transitional garments are the answer - perfect for pulling on over a long-sleeved tee now, or over a light cami when summer arrives. The Ribbons of Lace collection features seven such thoughtfully designed, yet carefree garments, including the drapey, twist-front Lotus Sweater,the wonderfully textured Mentha Cardigan, and the Lady Grey Tunic, with its alternating lacy rows and chain motifs. Younger girls get similar treatment with the Tucked Top and Garden Dress, sized just for them.
Looking to the twenties and thirties for inspiration, the Cat's Meow story offers seven designs that make a successful leap into the 21st century. What's old is new again and evident with Vicki Brown's Pickford Dress and Brenda K.B. Anderson's Zelda Cloche. Socks with strappy sandals or a batch of Clara Bows to brighten up your brogues - why not? Vickie Howell appears with an article on extended stitches, complete with a kerchief project for practicing the technique, and Julia Chambers helps you 'get a grip' and learn the best way to hold your favourite hook.
Use the change of seasons to revive your spirits, and renew your style with the inspired designs tucked inside this issue.
