Changing Colors

Take a cue from fall’s changing foliage and try one of these designs for the season. From cowls crocheted with brilliant variegated colorways to scarves and shawls that are the perfect accent to your autumn wardrobe, these patterns are must haves.10a4

Rustic Retreat

Adore cuddling up with a latte? Or perhaps transitioning your home from bright summer tones to more neutral, autumnal tones? These five patterns range from slipper socks to a bobble pillow, and all remind us that fall is a time to relax, unwind and enjoy the crisp morning air.8a4.jpg

Mum’s the Word

Make a grand entrance into fall with new designs inspired by autumn’s favorite flowers! A stunning afghan set will warm your sitting room while a trendy sweater will keep you toasty during a nature hike. Whether you crochet one of these patterns for yourself or for a friend, you won’t want to keep these new designs quiet!Suncrisp-Appleghan-Logos-01a.jpg

Fall into Winter

Love walks on cool, crisp days? Good, because winter is on the way and the days are going to get chillier! The solution to the cold is new designs to add to your closet. With several hats to choose from and a cardigan you’ll want to wear every day, these patterns will carry you well into the winter season.7a4

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!

Crochet Classics
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 Like Crochet

The October issue of I Like Crochet just came out yesterday, and it’s probably my favorite one – and not just because it has one of my designs it!

ILCOctoberCollageI am just loving the autumn colors and designs.  Check out this adorable Owl Stroller Pal. I’m thinking of making a couple of these as backpack accessories.  Owls are really hot right now.  If you like owls, there are a couple of other adorable owl designs in this issue as well.


Another design I’m loving is this Textured Heather Scarf.  I love not only the colors, but the pattern stitch.


And check out this Changing Seasons Sweater! LOVE IT!!!!


The last design I want to mention, even though I love so many of them in this issue, is the Ethereal Lattice Shawl.  This pattern is part of the Elemental Shawl Series. In this case the “element” is filet crochet, and the result is amazing!



I’ve spent a little more time looking around the issue and the I Like Crochet (ILC) website. ILC has the traditional features of a crochet magazine (letter from the editor, book reviews, product reviews), but I’ve found some features that are really great:

  • You can search the patterns by skill level (you can’t do that with a paper magazine)
  • You can also search the patterns by type
  • ILC has a section to feature all of the designers, authors and editors (Yes, you’ll find me in there!)
  • A current features of  ILC is as mentioned above, the Elemental Shawl Series
  • A Join-as-you-go Tutorial (if you hate stitching motifs together, this is for you)
  • Bobble, Puff, or Popcorn – Are you mystified by these stitches?  Well, be clueless no more!
  • Other great finds in this issue include how to do a Russian Join, Self Care and the Crocheter, and Knowing Your Hook Sizes

And, in case you were curious, here is my design, Colors of Autumn Baby Blanket:
