Summer is here and the WeCrochet team has transitioned from wools and alpacas yarns to cottons and linens. Summer isn’t just a the season to lay outside wearing shorts and tank tops, you can also continue to do your favorite craft. On this episode of the WeCrochet Podcast, we’re talk about all things summer crochet.
First Heather and Regan reconnect about what’s been happening and what they’re crocheting. Regan is excited about discovering a new crochet stitch, the crocodile stitch which reminds Heather of a Lift driver who made a mermaid tail with the crocodile stitch. Heather gives an update on her crochet doodles and both talk about their summer plans.
Sara and Heather flip through the WeCrochet Magazine Issue 3 together and talk about their favorite patterns to make during the long warm days. We also hear from some of our crochet influencers and designers, like Melissa from Woods and Wool and Sati from Rows and Roses, about their tips for continuing to crochet in the summer.
Nest Sara and Heather play a fun game where they have to guess which Furls hook embodies the other’s crochet identity. Which Furls hook would you pick?
Heather interviews Jessica from The Hook Nook about how she learned to crochet, the start of The Hook Nook and more. You can now find some of The Hook Nook notions on crochet.com > https://www.crochet.com/the-hook-nook
