I just got my hands on this latest issue of Crochet Today! magazine. This is one of their best issues! Of the 25 projects offered in this edition, FIVE of them are must-do’s and several others look quite promising. That’s a really high average for me.
First, there are a couple of Christmas items which I find charming. The Snowflake Garland, Wish Upon A Star tree topper, and Festive Wine Tags are cute projects which will work up quickly and make great gifts.
Nest are a couple of wearables that look quite special. The Opal Skirt, a granny variant designed by Robyn Chachula, is a knock-out. And, the For The Mom’s Shawl is a Solomon’s Knot project which will buzz through your stash. The Cherub Sweater and Booties, perfect for any little angel, are designed by Elena Malo and are absolutely adorable.
Then, there are 4 different afghan patterns in this issue. Three of them make my To-Do List. The Whimsey Blanket is a mesh background adorned with scattered motifs that will appeal to many. The Building Bock Blanket is another stash buster that puts a nice spin on stripes and blocks. Best, for me, is the Lancaster Quilt which takes a quilt-like pattern of color blocks to a very bright place. I love its colors.
The remainder of the projects in this issue will appeal to a wide variety of crocheters. Granny squares abound with 8 patterns including them. I think this issue is a keeper.
