Inside Crochet - 125


In these times of uncertainty all of us here at the magazine send our very best wishes to you and your loved ones, and hope that you are staying safe and well, and finding some respite in your crochet. One of the comforting things to have risen out of the past few weeks is the positivity and community spirit that our craft can spread, from rainbows in our windows to online groups working on projects together.

Inside this issue

This issue’s theme is sustainability. We’re championing natural fibres and eco projects that are kind to the planet, from Kath Webber’s ingenious cleaning cloths to Irene Strange’s clever Earthkind Shopper. We’re also mindful that sustaining body, mind and family is just as important, so delve into our gentle makes, many of which, such as Joanne Scrace’s clever Everlasting Socks and Theodora Burrow’s v-stitch blanket, would be perfect stashbusting projects.

Spending quiet moments hooking a handmade wardrobe ticks all my boxes for self-care, sustainability and individuality. I love Cassie Ward’s Nurturing Tee, an easy-hook, soft spring top that will become a favourite for many years, while Michelle White’s Clarity Sweater is the epitome of slow fashion – a boxy style with lovely drape that will work across the seasons.

I’m really excited to introduce our new Masterclass series. In this first column Scheepjes blogger Kirsten Ballering shows how to pick bright and cheerful colour schemes, plus she’s created a special Chevron Rainbow Blanket to hook and cherish.
