More for crocheters.

It’s rare that a week goes by without a new magazine or book popping up here at the shop. This week, our three newest publications are all for crocheters: one book and two magazines.


Brenda K.B. Anderson’s Crochet Ever After is a whimsical collection of crochet projects inspired by classic fairy tales.


Patterns for scarves, cowls, slippers, bags, and more are grouped by the kind of characters that inspired them: heroines, fairy princesses, witches, and the like.


Crocheted sock patterns can sometimes be hard to find; flipping through Crochet Ever After, I spotted this handsome pair, made with longtime HYS favorite, Malabrigo Sock, a springy fingering weight merino in beautiful hand-dyed colorways.



The current issue of Interweave Crochet has plenty of sweaters inside, just the kind of project you might like to hunker down with this winter.

DSCN3988Rohn Strong’s top-down “Frisco Cardi” is also made with Malabrigo Sock, making for a lightweight garment.


Make It! Crochet is a new Interweave publication, filled with small projects that are friendly and accessible for beginner crocheters: hats, scarves, and the like.



Make It! Crochet also features a helpful article on crochet symbols and stitch diagrams, which can sometimes feel like a hurdle to reading crochet patterns. Don’t let them intimidate you–let this article be your guide.


Come by the shop to peruse these latest crochet resources, along with our ever-growing collection of knitting magazines and books. See you there!
