In the vein of the Fug Girls...

Well Played: Interweave Crochet

I have been a very vocal critic of Interweave Crochet and the patterns they offer, so it is only fair that I give credit when credit is due. The quality of the design for the Fall 2008 issue of Interweave Crochet is orders of magnitude better than previous issues. (although... WTF?! at the "ornamental handspun motifs").

Robyn Chachula's Ridge Swing Cardigan is adorable, appears very well-fitting, and offers 6 different sizes in the pattern. The Northern Dreams Pullover, by Julia Vaconsin, will be the envy of knitters (colorwork like this is MUCH easier in crochet than in knitting). Lara’s Dance Skirt, by Doris Chan, is very of-the-moment.

Kudos to Kim Werker for putting together a stellar issue.

These are seriously the nicest crochet clothes I've seen in a long time. I've never tried clothes for myself because they either (a) look too "granny-square crochet" or (b) don't have patterns in bigger sizes. Thanks for the link!

No, I never have. I've been watching the community off and on for a while but I must have missed the fact that you're a designer. I'm embarrassed now! I promise, I'll check your site out.

I honestly have only recently (within the last two months or so) started trying things that are more complicated than baby hats and blankets - I finally feel like I "get" crochet enough to do harder stuff.

I was very impressed with the preview. Of course, this would be the issue after my subscription runs out...

I couldn't agree more. A very pleasant surprise. I can't wait to go buy it.
