Interweave Crochet Fall 2011

contributed by Shawn

Get out those crochet hooks!  There are some fabulous new crochet designs to dive into in Interweave Crochet's Fall 2011

Everyone loves a multi-purpose wardrobe addition and the Lace Canopy Cardi Wrap by Simona Merchant-Dest sure fits that bill!  These photos show the same garment worn in many different ways.  And the Fibre Company Canopy Fingering yarn is sure to make this a favorite all on its own.
There are several different hats to try out for gifts this winter.  I love the patterning on the Honeysuckle Hat by Aparna Rolfe. The Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine yarn shows excellent stitch definition.
The Atomic Hat by Linda Permann also has great stitch definition inspired by 1950's style fabric. Suitable for men, women, or children this hat uses the Spud & Chloe Fineyarn - a machine washable wool-silk blend. 
This one's name speaks for itself: the Best Guy Hat Ever by Brenda K.B. Anderson.  This calls for a sport weight yarn and it is just shouting out for the super-soft, easy-care, Berroco Vintage DK yarn
This hat would be a perfect compliment to the Hank and Joe Vest by Brenda K.B. Anderson as you can see by the photos!  The vest is shown in Berroco Vintage DK yarn. This vest is worked in one piece and has a lovely detail panel running up the front, but it isn't too fussy for boys or men.
For Tunisian crochet fans there is an excellent Tunisian and Entrelac combination project that creates quite the figure flattering combo: Betty's Tunisian Tee by Tram Nguyen. Try it in the Debbie Bliss Prima for another great easy-care garment.
