In Simply Crochet Issue 18
The sunshine’s got us in the mood for strawberries and cream and updating our kitchens. Spruce yours up with our collection of bright, gingham-inspired goodies. There’s a stool cover, potholders, apron pockets, place mats and coasters, a pretty shopper and more to make, all worked in stylish two-tone granny squares. Plus, you can even wear your squares with our sweet, summery camisole.
Anyone for tennis? Prepare for Wimbledon and hook a colourful pair of shorts and a length of juicy berry bunting. The fun continues with Kate Bruning’s ingenious soft cricket set. If that doesn’t quite hit the spot for Father’s Day, then treat a dapper chap to a crochet bow tie instead. There’s no need to choose between colour and texture when you can have both. Get to grips with bobbles to make a cosy striped blanket and cushion set, and a rather dotty jumper for a little one. With some projects, it’s all about the details.
Have a go at adding a scallop edging to an old favourite, and learn to finish like a pro with our ultimate guide to blocking. Also, this issue we’re chatting to our designer Hannah Cross about how she hooked her way to her dream handmade wedding. Plus, don’t miss Lucy’s Attic 24 favourites, our review of organic yarns, Jane Crowfoot’s travel-inspired makes and one oh-so magical amigurumi unicorn.
