Hopefully our glorious cover image of the very lovely Bella Achiaou wearing Katie Jones's Patchwork Pop Vest has already made you smile, because this month we've had such a fun time creating a contemporary collection of crochet patterns inspired by patchwork.Buy this issue →Go digital →
With a nod to classic quilting blocks, Lindsey Newns' Half-square Triangle Shawl is made in a luxurious Sweet Georgia Merino blend and is the perfect showcase for a mini-skein gradient pack. Kwannie Cheng's stunning Retro Tote and Purse set also features crisp block shapes and cleverly works fi let panels into its striking geometric pattern.
Of course we've also embraced all things granny square, just right for thrifty stashbusting and on-the-go crochet now we're allowed to sit outdoors with a friend. Cassie Ward's Utopia Jumper and Holly Woodward's Gigi Cardie are the perfect granny garments to let you play with colour, and our two lovely blankets and Summer Love Wallhanging will fill your home with squares of joy!
With all the motif making, get to grips with expert joins thanks to Joanne Scrace's step-by-step masterclass and let Lilla Crochet's Tatsiana Kupryianchyk guide you through overlay crochet with her beautiful beginner's Mandala.
It's a packed issue!
