Tracey Todhunter talks about her latest pattern featured in issue 76; the popular Vintage Flowers Blanket [above].
"In the 1970's my Dad was a prolific crocheter. We wore dresses,
waistcoats and ponchos that flew off his hook – and we all had motif
blankets draped across our beds made with the scraps of leftover yarn.
Dad taught himself to crochet by following instructions in the Golden
Hands (a magazine which came in weekly parts), I learnt by copying him!
My Granny taught me the basics, but it was watching Dad persevere with new techniques that really inspired me. He could crochet everything from exquisite doilies made with sewing thread to chunky wraps and baby matinee jackets.
