August is here and I am thoroughly enjoying flipping through the latest fashion magazines to see what is new for Fall ’14. I love this spread in W so much, it is actually making me long for sweater weather!
Recently, we got a question about one of our crochet patterns that begins in the round with a sliding loop. I crocheted a lot for a previous job, but I had never heard of a sliding loop for crochet. After a quick Google search, I realized this technique is also known as a magic ring or a disappearing ring. It’s a great skill to have because it helps you start crocheting in the round without getting that pesky hole in the top center of your piece.
Kendall Nahorniak learned the basics of crochet when she was 8 years old, but she didn’t do much with her skills until a couple of years ago. And it wasn’t long before she was designing popular patterns of her own.
