Wow – our Easter issue is positively blooming. Lucy from Attic 24 is sharing her love of crocheted flowers, and there’s a pretty primrose throw to make, a bunch of bold daisies (perfect for Mother’s Day), a peony motif and a marvellous matinee jacket for baby with a gorgeous forget-me-not stitch pattern. Divine. Plus, update your bedroom and accessorise in style with our modern gypsy makes – think bold colours, beads, embellishments, and a whole lot of flowers. Just gorgeous.  
 
Yes, spring is most definitely in the air, and that means Easter’s on its way. Get prepared with beautiful butterfly bunting, an adorable bunny brooch and quirky egg-shaped placemats by top blogger Wink. 
 
Plus, there are all manner of cute creatures to hook for a nursery makeover, including a big cuddly rabbit. Who could resist? Don’t miss our vintage treasure this month… did someone say Easter Bunny?
With a fresh season comes a fresh dose of style. Whether you like classic designs or instant updates, there’ll be something your wardrobe will want. Hook a stunning, boxy jacket, inspired by Chanel, a super-feminine bow scarf in the perfect pastel pink, or a fashion-forward pair of glittering collar tips. So you. And so playful. 
 
It’s time to rediscover the fun side of crochet. We chat away to some artists, bloggers and designers who work in a playful way. Feeling inspired? There are a few sweet projects you’ll love making just for fun – an adorable robot toy with buttons, stripes and bendy arms, and a little flowery shed key ring to keep your keys together.
