Crochet, Summer 2012

Looking for crochet patterns that echo current trends, but also have long-term wearability? We've got them in the Summer 2012 issue. Lacy cover-ups are perfectly suited to poolside or summer parties. Retro stripes grace crochet tops and dresses. Explore the Turkish edgings called oya, and adorn your own garments and home decor with a variety of crocheted edgings. Also, Maire Treanor's series on Clones lace continues with motifs for leaves and a winsome scroll. Twenty-two projects—some of which you'll want to make in several colors—will keep your hook engaged through the summer.
