Crochet Foundry Summer Issue Review
What is Crochet Foundry?
It is no secret I love Furls Crochet. Not only are their hand designed hooks gorgeous, their hooks alleviate so much of my wrist and hand pain.
But, recently, Furls Crochet took over The Crochet Foundry.
If you haven’t heard of it, you are missing out. The Crochet Foundry is a digital quarterly magazine that brings you exclusive and size inclusive garment patterns. On the 18th they recently dropped the Summer 2021 issue of The Crochet Foundry and I was lucky enough to nab a copy to review.
As with past issues, this issue does not disappoint. This issue’s theme is sweet treats, which I think perfectly aligns with summer. Each of the 9 designers share with you a pattern, as well as a recipe for something sweet. If you are anything like me, those recipes will go to good use!
One thing to note, is that the patterns all use yarn from We Crochet. We Crochet/Knit Picks have always strived to bring affordable and high quality fiber to crafters. If you have never tried any of their yarn, these patterns give you a perfect excuse. But, something I found to be especially helpful, in this issue, each pattern gives you 3 more yarn suggestions labeled Splurge, Spend or Save, so you can decide the best option for your budget and preferences.
I really like that this magazine is for wearable. Garments are one of my favorite things to crochet and most magazine are a mixed bag and end up with very few wearables.
As I mentioned before, these designs are made to be size inclusive and range from XS to 5X. Honestly, it can be really hard to find patterns that have this many ranges in sizes, so I really love that all of their patterns include these sizes.
I am in love with all of the designs in this issue. I really could see myself wearing all of the designs in this issue.
You can see from the photo, there is something for everyone. As long as you have experience reading crochet patterns, the patterns are easy to follow and include all of the information needed to guarantee maker success.
If I had to pick a favorite, from this issue,it would be the Flounce top from Liliana Buce. I adore those girly, flouncy sleeves. I also, really love the contrast between the white body and blue sleeves.
Another favorite would be the Perfect Parfait Tank Top from Ashlea Konecny. The loose layers are so fun and each layer uses a different stitch pattern which gives the top eye catching texture.
How much does it cost?
Each digital issue can be purchased for $15. But, they also offer a yearly subscription for $50, which includes Summebr 2021, Fall 2021, Winter 2021 and Spring 2022. The subscription also includes any special companion guides they may release.
If you would like to purchase the Summer issue or a yearly subscription, or you would just like more information on The Crochet Foundry, you can do so here. (This is in affiliate link, meaning if you make a purchase I will receive a small commission.)
Thank you for taking the time to read my review of The Crochet Foundry’s Summer Issue!
I received a copy of the Summer 2021 issue for free to review, but all of the opinions stated are my own.
