Inside Crochet - 145


The uplifting sight of green shoots in the garden and the first hint of buds in the hedgerows are nature's signals that a new season is on its way. They give us such a boost at this time of year, just as we're longing for a bit more colour. It's a time of new beginnings for our editor Sarah too, who is currently taking some well-deserved time off to enjoy her honeymoon, and will return refreshed for the next issue - when, hopefully, some of those promising spring shoots will be in bloom.

Inside this issue

In the meantime, I've been thoroughly cheered by the fresh

look of this month's projects. We have pretty flowers everywhere, from the fun hexagon motifs of Cassie Ward's tank top and Jo Smith's elegant floral motif shawl to Emma Friedlander-Collins' clever patches designed for upcycling your favourite jeans. But March can be fickle weather-wise, so we can't pack away our woollies just yet. Claire Montgomerie's cherry waistcoats are the perfect way to stay stylishly snug this month, while Helda Panagary's unisex Andi Cowls are the ideal cosy make.

If longer days put you in the mood for a home makeover, then we have some lovely accessories to reinvigorate your living space, including macrame-inspired hanging plant holders, a cabled cushion and, while we wait for the real primroses to bloom, the most beautiful Springtime Floral Wreath to adorn your door.
