Crochet Now 40 in shops now!
Hopefully we haven’t seen the last of the British spring by the time you are reading this, and like us you are itching to hook up brighter and lighter projects! Whereas in winter, we love nothing more than cuddling up with a hot drink and a blanket to crochet, come spring we want to sit outside and, well, do pretty much the same thing! And where better to sit and do that than in the garden?
The cooler evenings and afternoons spent in the garden can be warded off with the Garden Flower Set, or even an evening sat outside with friends can be celebrated through crochet with the stylish Marika Wrap. Our cover star this month is Lena Fedotova’s Pretty Coral Jumpurr (get it?), which is a fun way to use granny squares to make a cute little spring top!
Do you remember hunting for fairies at the bottom of your garden when you were young? The magic and whimsy of this memory came flooding back when we saw Lavender the Garden Girl, and also when Zoe Potrac’s Frog and Princess duo first came across our desks. Hopefully you will find someone you would like to make in this issue’s stellar toy selection.
We are delighted to announce the winner of the Stylecraft design competition that we launched back in September! If you’re looking for a new challenge why not get involved with The Big Knit with Innocent? Read our blog post on how to find out more.
