Inside Crochet - 82


Brrrrr! Autumn has most definitely arrived now, and my wardrobe is once again filling up with layers and mitts tokeep off the chill on the school run or when heading out for a walk. We’ve got plenty of projects this issue that fit that bill, too, with Sarah Reed’s Tunisian Cluster Mitts a particular favourite of mine, hooked in a pure Merinothat will keep my hands toasty. Jennifer Reid’s colourful floppy hat is also just what I need to keep the warmth in while not giving in to the upcoming winter just yet!

Inside this issue

My favourite project this issue though is Verity Castledine’s versatile Isla design, which can be worked in a variety of ways to suit your lifestyle. I’m a huge fan of hand-dyed yarns and have a large stash which I can’t wait to raid to make my own version of this pretty pattern. I don’t know whether to start with a simple top or a long-sleeved cardigan… Either way the lace design should work up quickly, so I may just make all three styles for myself!
If you’re not used to working with hand-dyed wool, check out my feature on page 24 for our expert tips to getting the most out of these extra-special yarns.
Elsewhere in the issue, we’ve also got plenty of cosy homewares to snuggle up with as the weather cools – try San Bee’s beautiful vintage-look Diamond Blanket, or Anna Meliksetyan’s striking Bobbled Pillow for a touch of crocheted style to brighten up your living room.

Happy crocheting
