Throwback Thursday: LuLu Leggings

Date: 13th October 2016 | Category: TBT

This week, we're throwing back time to issue 33 and Pauline Turner's stylish stockings.


Featured alongside a detailed tutorial on broomstick crochet, Pauline Turner's stockings design was an instant hit. Designed to be versatile, we envisioned them paired with with an A-line skirt and boots or heels and a mini for the more daring!

Why we love them: Pauline's LuLu Leggings really highlighted for us just how modern crochet can be. The pattern detail used in these leggings is simply beautiful, plus, Broomstick crochet in the round? Yes please!
