Inside Crochet - 136


As crocheters we often find ourselves defending our skills as being so much more versatile than many realise. Whilst we love a granny blanket as much, if not more, than the next person, our humble hooks can also create a magical array of items from fun toys and homewares to chunky sweaters and lacey doilies and yes, crochet can be extremely wearable!

Inside this issue

This month we wanted to welcome in summer by showing off the elegance, style and all-important drape that is more traditionally associated with knitting. And we've got a stunning collection to share!

Linda Modderman's Elegant Maxi Skirt is absolutely on-trend, with a swooshy, flared edging. Yessabett Bueno has designed the stunning fitted Sonata Top with pretty cap sleeves and delicate patterns, and Hannah Cross has used a gorgeous gradient yarn to beautiful effect with the very wearable Cherry Blossom Cardigan.

When it comes to layering pieces for summer evenings, it is hard to beat a statement shawl. Helda Panagary's exquisite Verge Shawl shows off the stunning hand-dyed Merino yarn to perfect effect, finished with a pretty ruffled border. And if the draping blooms of wisteria send you a bit giddy, like me, then why not create Kwannie Cheng's delightful door curtain, to keep the flowers around all year?

Happy hooking.
