Yarn on the beach? Of course! Why not?! If you saw our crochet on the high street feature last issue then you'll know just how on-trend us crocheters have become.Buy this issue →Go digital →
From festival style boho creations to raffia bags and hats and filet cover-ups. My first make this month will have to be Anna Nikipirowicz's pretty filet headscarf. It's a one-ball project, quick to hook and will be perfect for taming my hair on windy walks.
And then I'm spoilt for choice! The Nurturing Fibres organic cotton used in Rhian Drinkwater's lovely Pavilion Stripes Vest is a dream to work with, as is the beautiful Fyberspates Scrumptious that Tracey Todhunter has transformed into the stunning Selkie Sarong. My teenage daughter is also in love with Cassie Ward's Bright Lights Cardie, so I suspect that will be on my hook very soon.
We've got three fun characters for fans of amigurumi this issue. Sarah-Jane Hicks' cheeky seagull joined our seafront photoshoot and managed not to steal our chips, Matt Farci's crab is definitely eyeing up a new adventure from his rock pool and Erinna Lee's crocodile gave us the toothiest grin ever! Matt also brings us part two of his amigurumi masterclass with useful tips and tricks for a professional finish.
I hope you get to be beside the seaside somewhere this month. If not, then maybe one of our gorgeous beach blankets can bring the vibes to you.
