Inside this issue

We’re fully embracing this burst of colour in this issue, hoping to bring joy and a rush of happy hormones whilst you choose your favourite patterns to hook.

Cassie Ward has designed our cover star, the fabulous All You Need is Love Cardigan, an ideal cover-up that’s easily adaptable to any length. Lucy George has created the perfect statement summer top with gorgeous lacy sleeves and bright crochet embellishments, and if you want to add just a single pop of tangy cheer, then take our masterclass on triangular shawls and hook up Claire Montgomerie’s beautifully textured Ombré Braid Shawl.

There’s so much to love in the issue, but there’s one pattern I’m very excited about and have been keeping secret for quite a while… for those of you who are enjoying taking part in our Spirit of Flora CAL, we’re thrilled to bring you the first of Jane Crowfoot’s bonus patterns, the simply stunning Maker’s Bag which can be made using whichever motifs are your favourite and in whichever colourways make your heart sing. I can’t wait to see your interpretations pop up on our social media!
