With darker nights now creeping in, Iâ€™ve been stocking up on thick woolly jumpers and cosy cardigans â€“ and I think Annelies Baesâ€™s gorgeous Cremosa Cardigan might have to sneak its way up my â€œTo Hookâ€ list! While Jenny Reidâ€™s pretty Katherine Top, worked in a gradient of grey to pink, is just the thing to pull on when the temperature starts to drop and snuggle up under on the sofa. Iâ€™m also tempted by Ashley Crampâ€™s glorious Argyle Basket, perfect to tidy away the growing pile of yarn at the side of my seatâ€¦
Christmas is also fast approaching, which means itâ€™s time to start thinking about what presents I want to crochet this year. I think the adorable Fred Mouse would be the perfect treat for any young child, while the Olivia Shawl and Gentlemenâ€™s Scarf would make great his-and-hers gifts for relatives.
Weâ€™ve also included a few projects which are ideal for making with this issueâ€™s free gift, a Tunisian crochet hook. If youâ€™re after a simple pattern for practising the technique, try Sarah Reedâ€™s colourful gadget cosies, while if youâ€™re tempted by something a little more challenging, then take a look at Lindy Zubairyâ€™s glamorous Starlight Sweater, just the thing for any upcoming office parties. And if youâ€™re not sure where to begin with Tunisian crochet, take a look at our step-by-step introduction to the stitches.
