Crochet, Fall 2011

In this issue, we ease you into autumn with twenty smart designs that offer both challenges and quick gratification. Combine broomstick lace with a shell pattern; turn Tunisian on its side in an entrelac pullover; twist tiny cables into hats; try a top-down raglan for a child. Begin your own Clones lace keepsake with Maire Treanor's first two motifs in her series on Clones lace. Get your hooks ready for a season of smart crochet.
