Spring and summer crochet projects in June Crochet World
Published as "The Magazine for Crochet Lovers," Crochet World launched in 1978 as one of the first magazines geared specifically toward crochet. It offers the latest in crochet designs, with full-color photos and step-by-step instructions for completing a range of projects.
The June issue focuses on things for spring and summer, with items for travel, home décor and gift giving, along with toy patterns and apparel for women and children. Pattern instructions are standardized throughout and are written in skill levels ranging from beginner through intermediate.
As an added bonus, subscribers to the print edition of the magazine also gain full access to the online version of the magazine, with two years of digital back issues at no extra cost.
Regular magazine features are designed to create a network for learning and sharing crochet information, with Crochet Connections, Winner's Circle and Just Threads. A buyer's guide includes contact information for some of the best-known retailers of yarn and needlecraft supplies.
Carol Alexander, the magazine's editor, joined DRG in 2002, and previous to that worked 15 years as a professional crochet designer. She is an active member of the Crochet Guild of America, where she has served on the board of directors for several years.

Additional DRG books, magazines, kits and catalog items are available from the company website at DRGnetwork.com.
