Inside Crochet - 137


So the sun has arrived at last and most of us are falling back in love with our local area, discovering patches of greenery where we can spend time recharging our batteries and warming our faces. This issue of Inside Crochet is all about kicking off our shoes, leaning back and letting the vast blue skies of summer inspire our creativity.

Inside this issue

Our talented team of designers has created the perfect mix of

staycation projects, from Claire Montgomerie's elegant Golden Hour Vest and Annelies Baes' stunning Cloudy Sky Tee, through to the joy of bright motifs in Cassie Ward's Sunrise Dress and Linda Modderman's fabulous Summer Shorts.

Helda Panagary's beginner Tunisian project, the beautiful Misty Morning Shawl, and the riot of colour of Lucy George's Sunset Capelet will keep the chill off your shoulders on cooler days. We also have some perfect garden-lounging projects, including the contemporary Rainbow Picnic Rug by Lindsey Newns and Jo Smith's completely joyful Sunshine & Rainbow Cushions.

And if gazing at the clouds makes you contemplate what is out there, then pick up Kwannie Cheng's Rocket Pillow and say hello to Neil Yarnstrong and his cute alien friends in Gurinder Hatchard's Out of this World Playmat, for adventurers of all ages!

Wherever you are spending the summer, I hope you find time to take your project bag outside. An hour or so of gentle hooking in the sunshine, with a glass of something chilled, is a treat that's hard to beat.
