About the Issue
The Crochet Foundry Magazine team comes up with a new theme for every issue. This is always exciting because the themes are cute, well thought out, and the resulting designs, although vastly different, somehow always come together around the common theme. Last season (aka Fall 2021) the theme was “Desert Boho” – think of hip festivals in the Sonoran, endless red sand with low mountains looming in the distance, styles inspired by the free-spirited side of the American Southwest (check out my blog post on that issue here!). Well this issue, the theme is Winter Romance – think snowy date nights, cuddled together watching movies, or just lighting a cozy candle and enjoying peaceful winter evenings crocheting. How fun is that?!
As I mentioned, this issue contains crochet patterns for nine garments, two accessories, and two blankets! AND every garment pattern is size-inclusive (because EVERY BODY looks fabulous in crochet!). What I love about this issue (and about every issue!), is that there is such a wide variety in the types of garments. There’s a cardigan, crop top, ruana, sweater, poncho, dress, hoodie, and even a cloakigan! So truly there is a project for everyone and every skill level.
Yarn for Crochet Hoodie Pattern
The yarn I used for this hoodie is from none other than the fabulous WeCrochet! Specifically, it’s called Billow, which is a weight 5 bulky yarn, in the color Ice Lily. It’s made of 100% Pima Cotton, which creates a beautiful and soft fabric when worked up. The best part is that the yarn has a rustic look to it, as the strands go from thick to thin texture throughout the skein. This creates a stunning and unique look for all projects made with it. Not only is it great for people with sensitive skin, but it also comes in 24 colors!
Hook for Crochet Hoodie Pattern
If you followed my blog for any length of time, I’m sure you can assume which brand of hook I used! It was a Furls Crochet hook, of course! I used a J/6mm Furls Odyssey Hook. I had never used an Odyssey hook before this project, and I was very impressed with how sturdy the hook was. It’s quite heavy, but I found that the weight makes it easier and faster to crochet. I also love that this hook comes in so many different colors (13 to be exact!). Personally, I used the white hook for my project, but I have my eye on the bright Lime one for future projects. If you’ve never used a Furls hook before, check out my blog post here comparing 3 different types of Furls hooks.
I hope you enjoy the Winter Issue of Crochet Foundry Magazine and the new crochet hoodie pattern!
