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.

I just came across another crochet design of mine that I had nearly forgotten about. Here is my Holiday Ornaments Ripple Afghan that I designed for Herrschners using their 2-ply afghan yarn. This was designed as part of their Ripple of the Month series and they are now making it available as a kit, probably just for a limited time.
The Quick-Stitch Infinity Scarf is a pattern that you can stitch up in a hurry. It works up easily and quickly and can be made in any worsted-weight yarn. It makes a great gift. Make up a few to have on hand for ready-made gifts. You can find my Quick-Stitch Infinity Scarf pattern on Ravelry and Amazon.
It’s been a long time since I’ve had a design published (life has taken me in other directions), but I have a pattern in the February 2017 issue of Crochet World. Check out my Acadia Throw. The original design was made with Universal Yarn Uptown Worsted yarn. I actually really enjoyed working with this yarn. You can check out the design on Ravelry, purchase the February 2017 issue of Crochet World wherever in your local craft store or online.
I just received my copy of Crochet One-Skein Wonders for Babies. I have two designs in the book. You can see my Bottle Cozies design on the front cover and I have also have a baby blanket design included in the book.
The book is available for purchase on the Storey Publishing website and also on Amazon.
