Crochet Now 38 in shops from Thursday 7th February!
Oh how we wish we could enjoy a diet of chocolate, sweeties and biscuits all day (ideally without the calorie count) – it would be pure bliss. As it is, it’s unlikely that will be possible any time soon, so instead let us settle into being inspired by all things candy when it comes to our favourite yarn hobby!
When we hear the word ‘candy’, beautiful pastel shades spring to mind, as they did for Blazenka and her charming Sweet Pastels sweater. It’s modelled by top crochet blogger Sarah-Jayne of Bella Coco Crochet and she’s giving us her tops on achieving crochet perfection every time. Jewelled tones are used in Veronika’s impressive Candy Pop blanket and Rosina’s Liquorice Allsorts-inspired hat uses C2C in an unusual way.
Is it a little optimistic to be thinking about spring while we are just stepping into February? When we get the new-season yarn releases, we just can’t help but get excited for the sights, sounds and especially the colours of spring! We’ve brought you the must-see guide to new season yarn, patterns and some styles to keep an eye out for in 2019.
Finally, don’t miss your Official Shaun the Sheep mitts pattern, and keep your eyes peeled throughout the magazine to see where you can make the most of your essential crochet tool kit – you can never have too many stitch markers, wool needles or tape measures if you ask us!
