Inside Crochet - 92


Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside! I grew up by the beach, in a Welsh holiday town, and there’s just something so relaxing about wandering along the sand, enjoying a paddle and collecting seashells in the hot weather.

Inside this issue

Whether or not that’s what you’ve got planned for this summer, we think you’ll love our selection of beach inspired projects this issue, from a stunning chevron top by Jacinta Bowie to the fun striped kid’s tee by Anne Farmer. My personal favourite is Rita Taylor’s lacy skirt, inspired by the colours and shapes of seaweed and just the thing for pairing with a new swimming costume or bikini!
We’ve also got something extra special starting this issue – a new mystery crochet-along, designed by Sarah Shrimpton. It’s a fabulous textured shawl in a vintage-look yarn, and you’ll fi nd the pattern over the next three issues.
Please share your in-progress pics with us on Facebook or Instagram!
You’ll also see that we’ve got not one, but two free gifts for you this month. There’s an adorable rainbow stitch marker, plus a gorgeous colourful design by Kate Eastwood of Just Pootling – a fab summery backpack perfect for your trip to the beach. You can also get 15 per cent off the yarn at LoveCrochet – time to stock up the stash!

Happy crocheting!
