Our resident columnist Sara Sinaguglia's column is full of gorgeous delights this month, not only does she demonstrate how to make some beautiful bracelets using her tutorial here but she also shares her pattern for bright, granny square pillowcase edgings. We love this project, not only because it adds a little colour to an ever greyer start to autumn, but also because it uses one of our favourite yarns. Panama 4ply from Yeoman Yarns is a cotton acrylic mix that crochets up beautifully, with a lovely stitch definition and is available in seriously bright, clean shades, a rare find in a quality yarn. (Our favourite shades of the moment are Spray, turquoise and Lime - taking us back to those long, summer days on the beach...)
The Panama 4ply is incredibly good value for money at £12.50 for a 500g cone, and working from a cone is bliss - no collapsing donuts! Usually, we would all agree that more is more when it comes to yarn, but unfortunately Sara's edging only uses small amounts of each colour. This means it is a great project for using up ends, or, if you love this yarn and the gorgeous shades available, then take advantage of the fabulous package that Yeoman Yarns have made up exclusively for Inside Crochet readers. They have created packs of 100g spools of each shade needed for Sara's project, which minimises leftovers and is an even more affordable way to buy the yarn needed. Just call or email Yeoman Yarns, quoting IC45 pack for more details and get hooking!
