Have you seen this magazine at your favorite book or craft retailer? If you have, you must know that it’s a bargain at $6.99! This issue is full of beautiful crochet designs, the quality of which we have come to expect from Vogue. However, while there are some haute couture patterns in the mag, there are plenty of other more ‘mainstream’ designs that will appeal to a wide variety of crocheters. Even the ads are mainly focused on crochet! Many crochet magazines are full of ads that are truly aimed at knitters rather than crocheters – one of my pet peeves.
In this magazine, you’ll find patterns as well as articles featuring other crochet related topics. Two really good ones are ‘Fine Finishing for Crocheted Sweaters’ and ‘Decoding Crochet Symbols’. Patterns include cardigans, shawls, jewelry, button covers, caps, bags, and some other creatively inspired wearables. You’ll find lots of goodies in this issue, especially lots of inspiration!
While other crochet magazines of lesser quality (and some which are merely compilations of previously printed patterns) cost far more than this magazine. I find it to be a fantastic value – and a must-have for the crochet library.
