So, you may wonder what Crochet Foundry Magazine is and what they are about? Description from their website:
“Crochet Foundry was created in February 2020, when a group of designers came together with a simple mission: To create beautiful garments for women of all sizes.
The Crochet Foundry Team was delighted with the overwhelming response from the crochet community after releasing the first issue in Summer 2020 with 5 original designs.
Proudly partnering with WeCrochet and Furls, each digital issue continued with 7 brand new designs that celebrated our craft, and encouraged women to create, and wear, their projects with pride. Because every body deserves beautiful crochet.
In early 2021, Furls Crochet purchased Crochet Foundry, warmly welcoming the magazine as part of the Furls family. What this means for our customers is that we will now be able to provide MORE patterns in each issue, MORE content, and MORE support than ever before! Hold on tight! We are just getting started.” -Our Story- crochetfoundry.com
Now, 8 designers have come together for this Summer 2021 Issue to bring you 9 beautifully crafted designs.
Now, let’s dig right into my thoughts and over all impression of this Issue …
This magazine is very well planned and thought out. From, the very first page to the very last page. It just flowed smoothly the pages like vanilla icing over vanilla cake.
They navigation between the pages and patterns, are a clear path, there are no bumps trying to steal you away from your enjoyment. Each pattern included in this issue formatted clearly and easily to read.
They include detailed schematics and stitch charts, that will help and explain, if you get stuck in a certain part of the pattern.
Also, with purchasing the Summer 2021 Issue or the subscription through June 18 – 22, you will receive, as a bonus, the Style Guide, Gauge Matters and Custom-Fit Guide. Great bonuses.

After upon receiving this SUMMER 2021 ISSUE, is literally holy moly, I love it. Like seriously in love. Hands down completely. You ladies rock and created very beautiful and fun summery designs, that I know are going to loved this whole summer long. The combination of different patterns, through skill levels and styles. Even creating through the different affordable yarns for every budget, to come together to make these beautiful designs y’all lovely ladies have poured your talents and hearts into.
Another great thing about this Issue, is how you lovely talented ladies are wanting the patterns to reach a more wide spectrum, to fit a more wide range people. Showcasing size inclusive to every different type, than limiting. This is literally what drove me to your issues. Not one is the same and you literally can see it through every pattern showcased.
Everyone… I can tell you this it is INCLUSIVE ISSUE all the way from cover to back.
I did mention above the added features you will receive when you purchase this Summer Issue or a subscription which include: style and customized guide, also gauge matters. In my own opinion, I really believe they should be included inside the issue and would bring it more together as a magazine, from the beginning. They are a great collection of patterns, but I believe that the style and customization guide would bring it altogether. Even include which patterns would be great to use the style and customization guide for. I believe it would be more helpful in away.
But overall, I love everything about this Summer 2021 Issue. You brought manny patterns together ring in this season and summer ready treats, that I am excited to try out. Even some of these patterns are my treats into indulge in. I know I will be making a few of them!!
2 questions: Are you grabbing this issues? What of the 9 designs are you going to make or all of them?
