New Crochet Now! Issue 57 on Sale Now!
Normally this is the time of year we pull on our fun shorts, grab a pair of wellies, and head to our favourite festivals, from Coachella to Glasto, and everything in between! Even though most (if not all) of these events aren’t going ahead this year, we aren’t going to let that stop us from embracing our party vibes with our boho-inspired collection of crocheted goodies!
Make a start with Cassie Ward’s exciting duo of colourful garments, from her cropped Party in the Park Top and As the Sun Sets Wrap that takes the humble granny square and transforms it into a wearable, fun designer piece! Then bring the party inside with Liam Marshall’s Festival Flag Bunting – a great stash-busting project – and Lee Sartori’s trendy Rainbow Lightning Cushion that combines a white faux fur cushion with a splash of colour, all crocheted of course!
This month we welcome back the iconic Wallace & Gromit crocheted duo, designed by Alison Holloway! This pair were such a huge hit, we simply had to dig them out of the Crochet Now archives and share them with you, the perfect cheese-loving and cracker-devouring team that will bring a smile to your face as you crochet! We have plenty of other fun toys to crochet too, from Henrietta the Hedgehog, Justin the Picnic Beaver to Kate McCully’s amazing collection of When I Grow Up dolls to crochet, included in your bonus crochet book this month, brought to you in partnership with Deramores!
Finally, grab a slice of banana bread and a cup of tea and read from our favourite contributors, Sarah-Jayne Fragola, Kerry Lord and Jessica Carey, or why not read your crochet horoscope to find out what the stars are telling you to hook up this month?
