As autumn fast approaches we are looking at items that are perfect for layering, whatever the weather throws at us. Early fall is the perfect time to work up light layering pieces such as the stunning kimono dress, designed by our very own Tech Ed, Charles Voth. You could also get a head start on the big freeze by beginning your winter crocheting, with cosy accessories like the cleverly shaped fingerless gloves by Shirley Macdonald.
September is a great time to look at the catwalks for inspiration, as
the fashion magazines and fall collections are always full of cosy
crochet and warm knits for the colder seasons. On page 44 we check out
the hot looks for this year. The Sixties’ look is always on-trend and we
were inspired by iconic brands such as APC and Marni when we created
our fun photo shoot with a nod to this exuberant era: see page 18. We
also have fabulous small projects for beginner crocheters, from
statement necklaces to pretty lavender bags. At the other end of the
scale, we bring you interesting advanced tutorials this month, if you
are up for a challenge as the nights draw in. Laurinda Reddig shows us
how to work reversible intarsia and provides an oh-so cute yet poignant
premature baby blanket project to practise it on. Finally, crochet
connoisseur Pauline Turner has designed some beautifully patterned
leggings for this issue and she lets us into the secret of using
broomstick crochet in the round to make them.
