As modern and sophisticated as Interweave Crochet magazine is and as cute and trendy as Crochet Today! magazine is, Crochet! Magazine seems to fall into the more traditional and frilly category. Many of the patterns employ ruffles, flowers, and more ornate trims and edges, so I would recommend it for the intermediate crocheter. The magazine, which is the official magazine of the Crochet Guild of America, gives clear instructions for the patterns and the materials needed, photographs of the project as well as drawings and schematics for the finished product and how to put pieces together. They do offer a nice variety of women's (and sometimes men's) wearables, projects for baby, and home and seasonal decorations. There are regular columns that address readers' letters and "hooks and humor" as well as crochet in the news, and they too offer web bonuses at their website www.crochetmagazine.com
