Start new spring crochet projects—Now!

Your April 2023 issue of I Like Crochet is in Full Bloom!

Ah, the promise of Spring. Fresh flowers, blossoming trees, longer days for strolling — and lots of opportunities to crochet! Our April issue has projects to brighten up your home, your wardrobe, your dinner table and more! Here’s a preview of our latest issue of I Like Crochet.

We’ve got you covered with patterns for a top, a shawl, and even a skirt! New outfit, anyone? Start off with the Solida Bold Shoulder Top. You’ll love this fun & flirty design that incorporates half double crochet, a lovely lace section, and delicate shell edging for this one-shoulder top.

With Mother’s Day on the horizon, this is a great time to make a Mommy and Me project. The Zelie Mom & Daughter Flower Puff Bags will make great statement pieces for the spring and summer with their bold and beautiful flowers. Attach a metal purse clasp and chain, and you’ll have matching bags you can’t find in any store!

For a day project that will make mom and daughter happy, crochet a lovely beaded bracelet for mom and the perfect little mini-me bracelet for the young one. Magnetic clasps make these Sarelia Mom & Daughter Crochet Bracelets easy-on, easy off! Or how about matching headbands? Our Fiora Headband set is the perfect project for girls’ adventure day out. Crocheted flowers means Spring will always be in the air!

We celebrate Earth Day in April; but really, isn’t every day Earth Day? Choose a natural yarn for our Altaira Two Tone Tee. This top has a lot going for it: a soft and breathable fabric, a comfy rib stitch pattern with lacy edges, flirty, lacy cap sleeves, and your choice of bold buttons to bring the two different-colored sides together. Everyone needs a statement piece for spring; this could be yours!

You know that everything old is new again, right? Flower power is back in style with our Lottie Retro Flower Baby Blanket. These bold flower panels are worked individually (can you say travel project?) and then crocheted together. Finish the whole thing off with a multi-colored fringe and you’ve got a bold baby blanket with no sign of pastels. Groovy!

Of course, a little decoration goes a long way, and we have patterns for you and your home. Add a little Spring bling to your hair with our Bouquet Bobby Pins and Barrette set. You pick the colors (dig into that stash!) and arrange your flowers your way for bobby pins and a barrette that are totally you. Want to keep that floral feel indoors? Make our Raffia Flower Napkin Ring Holders. In just two hours — yup, two hours — you can have your own unique crocheted raffia rings in bright Spring colors. What a simple and lovely way to dress up the table!

With this issue of I Like Crochet, the hardest part will be picking which project you’ll make first. Don’t forget to make something for you!
