Inside Crochet - 67, 2015

67, 2015

Fashion and homeware trends seem to be heading towards the tropics this summer, with gorgeously bright, jewel-like shades, fruity motifs and leafy green prints abounding. I adore the sheer exoticness of this trend, which, while currently staring out at a windswept, washed out landscape, seems irresistible.
The vivid colours evoke a sunny, summery feeling even if the weather this season doesn’t always live up to expectations. As a nod to this style, the projects inside this issue are drenched in unadulterated colour; from hot pink to rainforest green via rich,

multi-toned variegated yarns. And if that’s not enough, we also have some mouth-wateringly fruity accessories, too!

Inside this issue

Our new Mystery Blanket project fits perfectly with the bright, floral

theme. Hooked in vibrant shades of Stylecraft Classique Cotton DK, the final throw will be a picnic essential. This month you begin with the main motif, which with clever placement of the colours, grades from warm  to cool  hues in just over a metre.

I can’t finish without mentioning Emma Varnam’s gorgeous dollhouse project. This adorable little carry case opens to reveal a sweet interior where every detail is meticulously fashioned in crochet and stitched in intricate miniature. Place your child’s toys and dolls inside and you can be sure that they will have hours of fun carrying their little treasures around.
