Crochet Now 56 – on sale now!

Issue 56 – out now!

Is anyone else looking for a little bit of escapism? This issue, our designers are inspired by the world under the waves, so you’ll find pretty seashells and aquatic creatures cropping up all the way through this issue. Our exclusive Magic Roundabout pattern will let you disappear to the world of Dougal, Florence and Zebedee when you’re crocheting these fab floor cushions.

Looking for a quick make? You can whip up a beachy book cover in no time or set your hook to work on our amazing chunky crab pouffé – perfect for resting your feet on after a long day at sea! Or take your time over a special project, like the Tropicana blanket, which uses mosaic crochet to create a stunning pattern of tropical fish!

For those of you needing to boost your stash, we’ve got an unbelievable giveaway this month. One reader will win a ball of every single shade of Stylecraft Special DK! Click here to enter today. If you’re a Stylecraft fan, make sure you take a look at blogstar Emma Varnam’s column.

Before you bust out your hooks though, why not try and get some quiet time for a good read? Inside this issue, you can meet the talented couple preparing to take over the crochet world or discover a book that’s a must have for stylish makers. I loved finding out what’s been happening in the crochet community this month. A lot of shops may be closed, but there’s still lots going on, so have a read and get involved!

Stay safe,

Issue 56 is available to buy from your local supermarket and newsagent from today but if you can’t wait, order your copy online, grab yours from Craftstash, or why not treat yourself to a subscription and never miss an issue again!
