Inside Crochet - Issue 73

Issue 73

It is widely believed that New Year’s Resolutions are incredibly hard to keep. My own experience is to start each New Year with a lovely clean slate, or at least a brand new diary; I always have the best intentions to fulfil the long list of aims and achievements scribbled in its pages by the time the year is out. However, I have often given up on many of them by the time January is through. This year, I have decided to try to use crochet to keep me on the right track and this issue we have provided an array of projects designed to help you get organised, take more exercise, or even get a good night’s sleep.

Inside this issue

Esme Crick’s simple baskets are going to be perfect for keeping all my haberdashery close to hand in my new office, while I am going to be the envy of my pilates group when I stroll into class with the beautiful colourwork mat bag on page 74, sporting some pretty yoga socks. It’s having darling pieces like this that make you look forward to exercise!

If your own crochet resolution is to try out a new technique, take a look at our feature for creating perfectly adorable amigurumi on page 78, with tips and advice from some of our favourite toy designers, then hook a cute duckling to try out what you have learned.

Finally, this month’s free gift of ric rac ribbon will add a splash of colour to any crochet project. Turn to page 59 to learn how to craft ric rac roses and make this year’s resolution to add a little more rainbow to your life!
