Or, maybe it’s that this sweet, clever design will make anyone who wears it feel like a Princess. Kate and her kin do not have the market cornered on dressy head wear. Inside Crochet, Issue 18, June 2011 has a simple but elegant version they call ‘Wedding Fascinator’. It’s but one of many lovely patterns in this issue – the quality of crochet design we have come to expect from this UK publication.
I am able to buy my copy of this magazine every month at Joann Fabric and Crafts which typically sells it for 10% off the list price of $9.99. I stopped in there today just to buy the mag. It’s always worth the $$ IMO. Yudu.com has an online version that is $4.99 per issue. That’s a real bargain.
Other enticing patterns in this issue include the DewDrop Scarf by Zoe Clements which is a Solomon’s Knot single skein beauty worked in Artyarns Beaded Mohair and Sequins, a truly stunning looking yarn, the cover Willow Camisole by Irene Strange which will definitely appeal to the twenty somethings, and Linda Permann’s Lace Skirt which is worked side to side. Also included are bibs, toys, shrugs and a bow-tie accented cap. Other articles place emphasis on color in fashion and, in the great minds think alike category, a nice article on beaded crochet – something I just blogged on.
I continue to be pleased by this magazine. I hope you are able to obtain a copy for yourself, either in print or online. I think you’ll find it to be a good value, filled with useful information and creative crochet designs.
