  1. Hi
    I am making the block bunny but you do not give pattern for the ears…
    Please help as nearly finished it

  2. Hi Hugh, I have juts taken up crocheting and purchased your issue with the love me do blanket and I having trouble understanding what ply is being used? It could be that I am in Australia and terminology is different? Whatever it is I would truly love to give the blanket at a go, even though I am a very new beginner. Thanks Sandy

    • Hi Sandra,

      I’m not entirely sure about Australian yarn terminology, however, we often substitute worsted weight yarns for Aran yarn over in the UK, so that might be your best bet for a yarn choice.

      After you’ve made your first square, I’d recommend seeing if it is around the same size as those made for the blanket (12cm) and adjust your hook up or down if not. That should give you a same finished size to your blanket.

      Good luck, and let us know if you have any more questions 🙂

    I just want to congratulate you on this new magazine. Issue 2 has been read several times and is picked up time and time again. I can’t say issue 1 only because I wasn’t lucky enough to get it. My mother who is a knitter looked at it and said it was 1 of the best crochet magazines she had seen…I tested this out on her buy buying g a similar named magazine I told her it was the next issue but she knew it was a fib due to layout and ease of reading…pleased to say I have got my 12 months subs and can’t wait for next issue.
    So well done to all and keep up the great work

  4. Does anyone know what size the yellow hook was that was free with issue 1?

  5. can i subscribe to start from issue one
