I’m excited to announce that my design Resplendent Afghan will be published in Interweave Crochet’s Fall 2021 issue, available online on the Interweave website August 25, 2021 and at newstands, bookstores, yarn shops, and craft stores in early September 2021. Incidentally, this will be the last print edition of Interweave Crochet, as the magazine is transitioning to digital only on Interweave.com.
Resplendent Afghan consists of granny squares with a twist – post stitches give it texture and color changes give it some visual pop. I think this colorway would be perfect for a dorm room!
If you would like to Crochet Along with this design, I will be hosting on my Ravelry Board and on my Facebook Crochet Along Group starting October 11, 2021. If you would like to use the yarn I used, you can order Paintbox Yarns Simply Aran from LoveCrafts (LoveKnitting and LoveCrochet) through my links and I’ll get a small commission.
