We pay homage to the dainty doily in this issue with 23 fresh designs for summer. Learn the history of the doily and crochet modern interpretations in shawls, tunics, bowls, and jewelry, as well as a bag and a tablecloth. Cardigans and pullovers featuring delicate pattern stitches are perfect for warmer weather. You'll find a few darling designs for children as well as a sneak peek at our upcoming series on Clones lace. Plus: Betsy Greer's Craftivism column focuses on comfort shawls. And we wrap up the Chain Reaction Afghan Project with assembly instructions and a chain border.
