Confessions of a Pattern Collector

Date: 18th April 2016 | Category: Pattern, Preview


In issue 76, Rachel Atkinson (from Loop) joins us with more Confessions of a Pattern Collector, and this month she shares her go-to design for little ones.

"I’m terribly superstitious about making – or at least finishing – items for newborns until they arrive. Then I need to work quickly to make something before they grow out of it! So it’s always useful to have a go-to baby bootie in the library that you can return to time and again and hook up in a few hours."
Read the full article and find the pattern in issue 76 of Inside Crochet magazine.
