Crochet Accessories 2012


This special issue of Interweave Crochet Accessories has more than 50 brand-new projects. A festive section is designed especially for the winter holidays, with a tree skirt, garland, snowflakes, a plush dreidel and more. Explore a new-to-you technique: broomstick, Tunisian, tapestry, cables, threadwork, crocodile stitch, and more. Or take on a new-to-just-about-everyone technique: reversible intarsia, which is explained by Laurinda Reddig, who includes a small and large project. More small projects will help you transform your yarn stash into a gift stash. Patterns for hats, scarves, and shawls will keep you crocheting through the winter months, with projects that you'll turn to again and again.
