I have a design in the Spring 09 issue of Interweave Crochet. It is the Seaside Throw.
I imagined this crochet throw as perfect for chilly days at the beach house. It reminds me of sand, ocean, starfish, netting and rope. Six separate pentagon-shaped motifs are joined together with wedge-shaped inserts to form a pentagon-shaped throw. The throw is edged with a crochet edging that resembles rope.
This innovative throw uses Tunisian slant stitch to make sturdy star-shaped motifs and triangular inserts. The starfish are caught in a netting of Tunisian double crochet and bordered in a rope-like stitch. Two sizes of crochet hooks balance the dense interior and looser netting for a light throw with drape.
For once I finally have a moment to myself! Time to stay in bed and surf the net. So it was an added joy to see the preview for Interweave’s Winter 2008 issue are finally posted. Love the cover sweater.
This means I can show you my design!!! I present the Mulled Spices Afghan. It’s published under my government name. I am hyped.
