So, welcome to our bright and happy Summer Staycation issue. Vacation plans may well be very different this year, but that doesn't mean we can't inject a bit of the holiday spirit with our trusty hooks and some cheerful yarn. Bring the seaside home with a clever Beach in a Bag blanket by Sarah-Jane Hicks, perfect for garden lounging, and why not go big with the theme and hook up Helen Anderson's gorgeous tapestry Candy Floss Cushion and a super soft Cromer Crab plushy?
And there's no excuse for not investing in a new summer wardrobe when you can make it yourself. We love the vintage vibes of our cover star Caricia Cardigan by Yessabett Bueno and Simone Francis has created a stunning, swingy Carousel Sweater that will look dreamy dressed up or down. Push your crochet skills with Annelies Baes' stripy Seaside Stroll Top or wrap yourself in beautiful festival vibes with Claire Montgomerie's motif shawl (paper copy readers will be able to use their cheery covermount tassels). And what about our summer cotton fisherman's sweater - a definite classic! Plus, if you have a friend or relative in need of a virtual hug, Matt Farci's handcrafted, happy vase of flowers is guaranteed to raise a smile!
Do share your makes with us - we love to see them come to life!
