The new issue is out from 12th December!
Winter is one of our favourite times of year to crochet! After the mad dash of Christmas, with presents all finished and gifted, it’s the perfect time to grab your hook and indulge in a little selfish crochet. The delight of snuggling inside with a hot drink and a crochet blanket or jumper on your lap is pretty difficult to top. This is the season for those must-have accessories and garments to keep warm, which is why this month the team put our heads together to bring you a collection of everything you will need to get you through the winter!
Start your new winter wardrobe with a classic sweater with the Snowcap Sweater from Grace Kok – the simplicity of design creates such a flattering, staple garment for your wardrobe. Then hook up a new winter scarf with the Brumal Scarf that is crocheted with the yarn held double for a quick, snuggly make. Or perhaps the Tunisian Bubble Scarf might be more to your taste? Then complete your collection with a pair of fluffy socks or push your skills with Lir Shilton’s amazing pair of Sleepy Sheep slippers!
We hope you will love your essential new crochet tools too – your six new yarn bobbins are must-have tools to make colourwork projects easy to manage! Find out what your bobbins are and how to get the most out of them inside your issue, along with four fabulous patterns to get started tonight inside, including a fun blanket, a hot-water bottle cosy and two stunning cushions. If you are familiar with bobbins, we are certain you will love using these charming sheep bobbins for all your projects.
