Yarn Spotlight: Gilded Yarns
by Marcy Smith

Like bees to nectar, we are drawn to things that shimmer. Unlike the bodacious bling of a few seasons ago, this fall’s new “bling” yarn is soft, shimmery, and understated. Also, unlike some novelty yarns, this yarn slides more easily into everyday crocheted garments. It’s perfect for an elegant stripe or trim on a garment. Here, we’ve rounded up some current sweet-as-honey yarns, along with suggested uses for each and notes on how they crochet. .

Parenthook: Cabled Scarf
by Vickie Howell

This issue’s project explores both symmetry and asymmetry. The Set Aside Scarf includes a front post treble cable created with two three-stitch columns that wind around each other at even intervals. This meandering element is set slightly off the center point-or as I prefer to call it, “jauntily askew”-to make what could be a traditional stitch pattern a little less so. 

Everyday Crochet
by Kathryn Vercillo


Patrick Ahern learned to both knit and crochet from his mother during his last year of high school in his hometown of Woodland Hills, California. Pat, now thirty-three, continues to knit wearable items but prefers to use crochet to make art, using a variety of different stitches to create detailed two-dimensional and three-dimensional portraits.

About Lindsay Jarvis

Lindsay Jarvis is the Products and Promotions Editor for Interweave Jewelry. New to jewelry making, she comes from the yarn-filled world of Interweave, working in the past for Interweave Crochet magazine and then for Interweave Books. She has always been fascinated by the arts, fashion, and crafting. Years ago, after picking up a pamphlet on how to knit, she suddenly became fixated on fiber and began learning as much as possible. Lindsay’s designs can be seen in Interweave Knits, Interweave Crochet, and Interweave Crochet Home. Eager to absorb as much as possible about jewelry, she is ready to experience all of the mistakes and triumphs of a being a beginner all over again. When not tangled up in yarn or metal, Lindsay loves to walk her two toy poodles, play around with vintage fashions, watch old movies, and attend ballet classes.
