New Patterns in February 2015 Issue of I Like Crochet!

I’m excited to share two new crochet pattern releases!

This post contains affiliate links.

Both are in the February, 2015 issue of I Like Crochet, a relatively new digital crochet magazine that is available for your desktop or iPad. New issues are released every two months.

February2015Cover

My first pattern in the issue is the Scrappy Shells Blanket.

Although you could definitely make a scrappy stashbusting project with this pattern, I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in seven colors for the sample.

I love the way it turned out! As you may have noticed, I love asymmetry, and I’ve included an asymmetrical edging on just one side of the blanket.

My second pattern is the Shimmery Valentine Bangles.

These are super quick and easy to make and are a fun project for teens. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Glamour in 3 colors to add some bling for my samples.

One of the things I love about I Like Crochet is how many patterns are included in each issue (more than 30). My favorites from this issue are Nazanin Fard‘s Berry Sherbet Shawl, Beth Graham‘s Scraptastic Log Cabin Blanket, Olivia Kent‘s Cherry Tart Cowl, Patti Notestine‘s Forever in Love Slippers (available in 3 sizes), Dora Ohrenstein‘s Plum Raspberry Pullover (available in 4 sizes), and Suzanne Visch‘s Lime-Trimmed Cardigan (available in 5 infant and toddler sizes).

There’s also a great tutorial for the spike cluster stitch along with a pattern for the Spike Cluster Clutch (also by Dora Ohrenstein).

You can find the table of contents for the February, 2015 issue here. What’s your favorite pattern in the issue?

Crochet Pattern: Glimmer Glamour Scarf

I’m releasing a new free crochet pattern every week through December. Each one can be made with 3 skeins of yarn or less, and would make a great gift (for someone else, or as a reward to yourself for all of your holiday crafting!).

Today’s pattern is the Glimmer Glamour Scarf. This skinny scarf is crocheted with a metallic yarn that adds some pizzazz to your outfit. Made with just two skeins of Lion Brand Vanna’s Glamour yarn, this scarf can be styled several ways. This project crochets up quickly and the traveling bobble v-stitch pattern will keep you on your toes and add a little texture.

I checked out the great tutorials for scarf styling over at Scarves Dot Net, and I’m including a few of my favorites for this scarf.

There’s the Girly Windsor

 

 

…and the Carmen Miranda

…and the Loop and Tuck or the Loose Wrap (right).

This scarf also gave me a chance to share another #scarfie – Lion Brand‘s hashtag for a scarf-wearing selfie.
