Spring is definitely on the way. My daffodils may be looking a little battered from the storms, but their bright bobbing flowers make me smile every day. Noticing the little changes in nature and the sure progressions of the seasons, with new buds shooting and the emergence of colour again, is bringing comfort to many of us, this year more than ever.Buy this issue →Go digital →
So, join us in celebrating all things spring this issue, with pastel shades, floral influences and soft but warm yarns.
Go all out petal power with Cassie Ward's Flower Puff Top, or more subtle with Claire Montgomerie's beautiful New Beginnings Tee. And keep those early spring chills at bay with stylish accessories such as Rosina Northcott's delicate Ostara Cowl and our pretty cover project, the Spring Beret by Lucy George.
For quick-hook cheery projects, try our trio of Easter-themed wreath, mobile and mandala, perfect for using up existing stash piles. And if you've got a much-loved skein of hand-dyed yarn but aren't sure what to do with it (don't we all?!) then dive into Joanne Scrace's expert look at using hand-dyed yarns in crochet, and start planning your colourways for her stunning Stitcher's Rhapsody Shawl.
