Description
Welcome summer with light, comfy projects perfect for hot-weather fun and fashion. Tank tops, camisoles, and accessories help regulate temperature; projects for babies are cute, quick and fun; and filet crochet spruces up simple patterns. Edie Eckman saves you time and headaches by explaining how to join motifs as you go, and Michelle Wiener explores crochet's spiritual side in her quarterly column. Crochet Around Town transports you to Philadelphia, and we introduce several new departments, including a Reader Gallery, Back to Basics, and Departures.
