Inside Crochet - Issue 52, 2014

Issue 52, 2014

Issue 52, in shops from Friday 28 March 2014!

Everywhere I look at the moment, the first buds and blooms of the year are peeking into view. In celebration of the spectacular colours of the spring bloom, this issue is inspired by florals. Floral prints, lace motifs and accessories were all over the spring catwalks, so this season you can maximise your flower inspiration with clashing jewel tones and large motifs, or tone it down with delicate flowery lace in neutral shades.

Inside this issue

The simplest way to make and wear crochet florals is to hook up some quick motifs and turn them into corsages or other accessories. Not only do we have an exclusive and very cute corsage pattern from Jan Ollis this month, but also a new customising feature, which in this issue focuses on the crocheted flower. Emma Varnam shows us how to make adorable clips, hairbands and decorative blooms for any project that might need prettifying.

In addition, if you aren’t particularly green-fingered (or even if you are) then hook some bright projects for your garden, which will bring colour to any corner that has failed to bloom. Valerie Bracegirdle’s garland is the perfect outdoor party bunting, which you can leave out all summer long.

One of my favourite projects this issue has to be the flower pots gift set. There is a great old musical called Say It With Flowers, the title of which was subsequently borrowed by a famous fl ower delivery company to great effect! Knowing which flowers are a friend’s favourite, taking the time to choose, buy and send them is always a lovely gesture. Including a pretty, handmade pot and personalised labels that can be reused will be sure to make a lasting impression.
