Did you catch “The Night that Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles?” I hardly ever watch award shows, but I wasn’t about to miss a tribute to my favorite band. There were lots of beautiful covers of Beatles hits including “Yesterday,” “Revolution,” and “In My Life,” but there was one song none of the artists tackled: “Strawberry Fields Forever.” I love that song because it reminds me of warm weather and picnics, two things that seem to be a long way away.
Since the Grammy tribute let me down, I decided to find some Strawberry Fields inspiration elsewhere. With these crochet and knitting projects, I can wrap myself up in the spirit of summer whenever I want. AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns has tons of berry-licious blankets, while AllFreeCrochet and AllFreeKnitting specialize in wearable strawberry crafts.
