“We wish you a merry Christmas, and a yarny New Year!”
Season’s greetings from all of us at Inside Crochet – I hope you’re getting a chance to settle down with hook and yarn and indulge your creative side, in amongst all the frantic shopping and decorating and other Yuletide preparations.
Whatever stage you’re at with Christmas planning, we’ve got the perfect project for you, from Madeleine Kimberley’s gorgeous Christmas tree to NT Maglia’s colourful Snow Valley Tote – just the thing for getting those presents home from the shops. Not forgetting of course
Claire’s fun Pom Wreath design, which uses this issue’s great free gift, a set of super-simple mini pom-pom makers.
If it’s presents you’re after, then Tracey Todhunter’s cosy hat and mitts set is sure to go down a treat, while her Super Skinny Scarf is just the thing for stylish friends and great for using up that special skein of sock yarn in your stash. And Liz Ward’s cheeky polar bear is sure to be loved by younger family members!
Finally, if all your Christmas prep is out of the way, why not hook yourself some winter fashion to keep you cosy on the sofa? From a cabled dress to a classic cardigan, we’ve got all the patterns you need this season.
Happy crocheting, and merry Christmas!
