As for the selected patterns, have I mentioned how stunning they are? Take a look at the Mint Breeze Cardigan, as featured on the cover of our August launch issue. A simple half-sleeve button-up cardigan, this sweater is perfect to protect you against the unexpected chill of those long summer nights. The lace inserts worked all over the body and sleeves of the cardigan make this lightweight sweater the only one you’ll need this season.
Maybe cardigans are a little too tricky for you – no worries! I Like Crochet also features many beginner and easy crochet patterns that will have you working up accessories in no time. Do you want to crochet the most adorable little baby booties you’ve ever seen? You just have to make these darling Little Rose Booties that are perfect for keeping little feet warm. Their small size ensures a quick work-up time, but the intricate flower detail makes them simply divine.
If you’re more interested in afghans and babyghans, we’ve got you covered, too! Take a look at the Caribbean Shells Afghan in our launch issue; its pastel striped pattern evokes a calming Caribbean environment. Brighten up any room with this easy-to-make afghan. The pattern repetition means less to learn, so it’s perfect for a beginner.
Another exciting feature of I Like Crochet is our Stitch School, a bimonthly tutorial and pattern feature. Step-by-step instructions, both written and photo-illustrated, will walk you through a new or challenging stitch or technique. Once you learn the basics, put your new skills to the test and stitch a great design that features what you just learned.
