Last week I shared a (partial) list of crochet/ yarn apps for iPhone and included a bonus list of the magazines I’d found in the app store that had at least some crochet in them. I thought I’d elaborate on that list of crochet magazines today. The descriptions come from the iTunes store.

Each issue is 100 pages or more in full colour.”
