For autumn, we have a bushel of projects to ease your hook into peak crochet season. To ease your wallet, five projects use only one skein of yarn—and three more call for just a dab of another skein. A special section features five quick gifts to give you a start on holiday giving. Sweaters include a mix of interesting construction, from a top-down raglan sweater to a sideways-worked vest and a cardigan with minimal seaming that works the buttonband at the same time as the body. Dora Ohrenstein explains how to attach various closures, and Betsy Greer introduces craftivism to get you started on goodwill crocheting. Franklin Habit serves up a feast of hilarity as he takes up the crochet hook for the first time. In all, 22 projects will keep you crocheting through the season!
