Inside Crochet - 140


I really look forward to this change in the seasons. There, I've admitted it! And in a very unscientific poll of the team, it seems I'm not the only one to find the transition from summer into autumn a time that can spark joy - largely down to our woolly habits!

Inside this issue

Out come the handmade accessories as walks take on a cooler feel, and the slight chill of evenings make shawls and wraps perfect transitional pieces. But the highlight of this time of year has to be planning our winter projects - choosing patterns, colours and yarns that will inspire us and keep our creativity ticking as we hunker down and indulge in more crafting time.

This issue is a celebration of contemporary patterns in crochet fabrics, showcasing a wide range of techniques to hone your skills and keep your interest. From Esme Crick's stunning introduction to mosaic crochet with her Silver Birch Tote Bag and Misty Mountain Throw right through to Annelies Baes' incredibly detailed, cabled cardigan, there are patterns for all skill levels to try.

And another reason why this issue is super-exciting is that we can finally show you the big reveal of this winter's crochet-along, by the wonderfully talented Jane Crowfoot! If you can't wait a moment longer, turn to page 19 to see the Indigo Dreams Blanket in all its splendour. Gather your yarns and join us for Part One in the next issue!
