So after you’re done celebrating this weekend, check out all the latest trends and patterns for crochet. I have a feeling, you’ll love what you see. I have included some photos of some of my favorite patterns below to temp you into subscribing. And here is a summary of what you will find in this issue:
Easy Being Greenery
The color of the year is a happy and vibrant shade of green. We challenged our designers to create patterns that feature this happy hue in new and exciting ways. Fill your home with greenery accents for a fresh take on summer.
Crochet like a master artist with these four inspired designs. Will you crochet Monet’s water lilies? Or will you pick up your hook and do a little Boogie Woogie? It’s up to you!
Feels Like Fall
Fall is around the corner and you’ll want to start preparing soon! With a bright and sunny color palette, these patterns will help ease you into the new season.
Headed somewhere fun this summer? You’ll want to have at least one of these designs with you! Lightweight styles and afghans perfect for a car ride, these patterns are adventurous and exciting. Take a trip with your crochet when you begin one of these designs.
Beat the Heat
It’s the middle of summer and crocheting in this weather can be quite the challenge! Five new patterns that you can wear on the hottest days of the year will inspire you to pick up your hook and crochet the summer days away.

Spring is in the air and the April issue of I Like Crochet will get you into the spring of crocheting things up for Easter, Mother’s Day and for yourself!
Some of the projects in this issue include:
Fairy Tale Shawls: Five Spellbinding Designs
Grandma’s Favorite: The Road Trip Throw
Pretty Patterns Just for Mom
Your Next Obsession: China Blue Honeycomb Scarf
One of the best things about Easter is all of the yummy and sugary candy that comes along with the season. Inspired by the pretty pastel colors of jelly beans and chocolate eggs, these patterns will make your Easter extra sweet this year.
Make it for Mom
Mom deserves something special on a day dedicated to her. Crochet something small or something big – and she’ll be grateful for the extra thought behind her gift. Moms are great and Mother’s day is the perfect excuse to shower her with love. Take your pick from this special collection and celebrate mom.
Fairy Tale Shawls
Once upon a time we were little girls dreaming of fairies and princesses on adventures. We will always cherish these dreams and we wanted to create a collection of shawls inspired by our memories of magical lands. These elegant shawls are paired with fancy gowns and are perfect for going to your very own special events. Just be sure to be home by midnight!
What happens when you ask your designers to look to the past for inspiration? Incredible things! This collection of Crochet Classics spans decades of vintage styles and motifs to create new designs with that coveted “new vintage” look.
Birds of a Feather
Springtime means the birds are back and singing sweetly in the morning. While flowers are popular motifs to crochet, we set out to let birds share some of the spotlight this spring. From feathers to bluebirds, get ready to crochet to the tune of birds.

Wear this motif as a way of showing your support of those battling breast cancer (please read my previous post) or give to others to show your support for them.
I haven’t shared this news with many of you yet, but I was recently diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast Cancer. It has all happened very fast. Back in November I was originally told it was Stage 0, non-invasive, only to learn just this week that it was actually Stage 2 invasive. I have undergone 3 surgeries since November, including a double-mastectomy just last week, and have yet one more surgery to undergo tomorrow. I will be starting chemotherapy in the near future, followed by radiation. I don’t know what my ability will be to work during this time and have limited time off and no disability insurance. My boyfriend started this GoFundMe campaign if anyone would like to help during this difficult time. Thank you for ANY AND ALL help, including your thoughts and prayers.
