Crochet Today – March/April 2010 – now in-store!

Yay!  The new issue of Crochet Today – March/April 2010 arrived by courier today.  I have it listed ready for purchase – 4 copies only.  Crochet Today will be a regular item from now on.

I am loving the “Grandma’s Rose Throw” pattern – so kitsch, so retro!

The pattern requires Red Heart Soft yarn in the following colours:

Light Grey Heather

Seafoam

Black

Red Heart Soft is a super-soft and shiny acrylic in a worsted-weight.  This yarn is very economical and produces a lovely result at minimum cost.

However, if you wanted a natural fibre, I would recommend a pure wool or wool blend such as Lion Brand Wool-ease or Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride for a more traditional, though heavier, afghan.

See my yarn substitutions category for some ideas in natural fibres for this pattern.

Happy Crocheting!
