This month we have plenty of projects that will have you full of the joys of spring! Cute critters, patterns for babies and children, plus an array of colourful garments and accessories to ensure youâ€™re prepped for warmer weather.
There are so many beautiful patterns inside this month that itâ€™s hard to choose my favourites, but I do adore Sarah Shrimptonâ€™s vegetable rattles, which are beyond cute! Add a toy rattle, bell or other crinkly, jingly insert to create a set of sensory toys for your child, or hook them as cute ami for older kids (including yourself!).
I have also put Emma Friedlander-Collinsâ€™ striking Sunset Sweater to the top of my making queue â€“ with its ombrÃ© edgings itâ€™s a contemporary, flattering garment, and so comfortable and easy to wear.
As always, youâ€™ll find a quick-to-make, must-hook project in Rachel Atkinsonâ€™s vintage column. This issue itâ€™s a set of delicate accessories, which I can see being used in many different ways. As well as a necklace, I might make a summery band for my daughterâ€™s hair, and they would also work well as dainty garlands for garden parties.
also got a handy recap of Tunisian crochet for any beginners, with a pretty summer vest for you to try out your new skills.
