Issue 88 is out now!

Date: 30th March 2017 | Category: News

Spring is now definitely in the air – I’ve even been able to put washing out on the line again! And though I’m sad to pack away my thick woolly jumpers, I also love the opportunity to get hooking more lightweight projects, such as my striped Glenna Jumper or Emma Potter’s elegant Daphne Shawl, which is inspired by the Cornish coastland and the novels of Daphne du Maurier. With sun starting to brighten up the darker corners of my home, I’m also planning on adding some extra spots of colour, such as Dedri Uys’s pretty and practical draught excluder, or Sarah Hazell’s cushion which uses a weaving technique for added texture.

This issue we’re feeling a bit patriotic and celebrate some of our favourite British yarns! There are some truly gorgeous breeds and blends available, from the colourful Wensleydale used in Jacinta Bowie’s striped Josephine Cardigan to the natural shades of John Arbon yarn in her stunning motif shawl, the felted textures of Lynne Rowe’s Radial Bag and the Yorkshire raised and spun Wendy yarn in Millie Masterton’s adorable sheepy blanket. And on page 26 Rachel Atkinson of Daughter Of A Shepherd explores just what makes British wool so great, and where to buy some of our favourite British yarns.

We’ve also found a great free gift for you this month – a set of four shell buttons, with a pretty floral design on each one. They’re ideal for a classic cardigan, a button-up cowl, or Claire’s adorable baby cardigan on page 80.

Happy crocheting!
