Interweave Crochet Fall Edition 2016 features a project knitted using Malabrigo Arroyo in the Reflecting Pool colorway.

According to the magazine, this issue “celebrates crochet cables, with big cables and little cables, rich crossed post-stitch cables and light traveling cables, in projects ranging from an entry-level cowl to an ambitious cardigan and pullover. For those who haven’t crocheted cables before, we include tutorials to get you started. Noncable projects include garments and accessories with rich textures and colors. All of these projects introduce innovative techniques that will engage your hook and enhance your autumn wardrobe. Also included is Dora Ohrenstein’s third installment on crochet history. Altogether, there are 18 splendid projects to keep your hook busy through the fall”.

The design is called “Tetrad Cable Capelet” by Dora Ohrenstein and we will let the pictures speak for themselves, showcasing this lovely design.

Malabrigo & “New Heights in Lace Knitting”

Last June edition features an Andrea Jurgrau project knitted in Malabrigo Nube spun into a lace Yarn.

The pattern represents the South American mountain Aconcagua in a book that focus in the mountains of the world.

“Aconcagua, in the Andes mountains of Argentina, is the highest mountain on the south American continent, at 22,837 feet (6,961 m). The first recorded ascent was in 1897 by a British expedition. It continues to be a popular climbing destination, and the youngest person documented to have reached the summit of Aconcagua was a nine-year-old, in 2013. The oldest documented climber was an eighty-seven-year-old, in 2007.

This project gives directions for a handspun version and one knit with a commercially available yarn in the identical fiber. The handspun version omits the beads, which are used liberally in the commercially available yarn version! There are two different bind-off options. The “EyeBrow” bind-off takes longer and uses more yarn, but it is well worth the effort. The handspun version shows the Gathered Crochet bind-off and the other shows the “eyeBrow.”

We are happy to share with you the “Indiecita Shawl” images. (It shares name with the Nube color used for the pattern)
