Crochet time is precious, so in this issue we’re sharing a very special collection of colourful designs to spruce up your crafting corner and make it all your own. There are pretty pin cushions, drawer tags and a gorgeous granny square blanket to make, as well as lacy hoops to display your creations.
If you like to get your teeth stuck into a great crochet blanket project, then you’ll love what else is in store for you this issue. Find star blogger Lucy of Attic 24’s first ever column, all about her enduring love for the humble crochet blanket, and Nicki Trench shares her pattern for a stunning hexagon throw. We chat to another blogger and blanket-lover, Andrea, about what inspires her, and this month’s motif is a cute heart block that could form the beginnings of an awesome cushion or (you’ve guessed it) blanket.
In need of a granny square fix? Get in on the monochrome trend with our oh-so cool granny scarf. Simone Francis’s tough-girl biker jacket in petrol blue also packs a punch – with its zips and lapels it puts a crafty spin on a classic.
And the ultimate showstopper? Flick to the back and check out our brightest-ever vintage find. If bright colour is your bag, treat yourself to a neon beanie hat by the MyBoshi boys – just half trebles and a pom-pom.
Meanwhile, Wink shares a pretty picot mandala in the calmest blues and greens. Go absolutely wild with foxes and badgers and bears. There are six super-fun animal accessories to make plus Kate Bruning’s cute and quirky circus bear. See if you can resist. And of course, no wilderness can be braved without proper attire. Anne Egan’s clever three-in-one hooded scarf with pockets in a delicious berry shade has got you covered.
There are new skills to be learnt, too. Swot up with our all-bases-covered guide to crocheting buttonholes and button loops, and there’s a pair of yummy textured pockets with cables to hook as well. Plus, don’t miss our boot toppers, sweet hanging hearts and top tips for aspiring designers.
