The Complete Guide to Crochet Volume 2

I am so thrilled to see this new bookazine hit the news agents. It’s stuffed with some of my favourite designs from Inside Crochet (including the  gorgeous foxy capelet on the cover, I really want to make it for myself).

I have a few designs reprinted inside, some of which are ideal for spring. Also included is my pattern for a Tunisian Crochet Sunglass case, which will be very handy for the summer!

As always, the Inside Crochet team have excelled themselves. A lovely mix of articles, featured yarns, designer profiles and patterns for every skill level.

Look out for it now, it’s a great collection.

Bright Pot Holders

Buttoned Up Mittens

Doily Rug

Published Pattern: Doily Rug

Finally I can share a photo of the doily rug I mentioned in my last post. My Dad used to crochet lots of lacy doilies and tablecloths in the finest crochet cotton. I could never have the patience to make anything so fine, but I do love how using a chunky yarn has made  this into a practical and decorative piece of homeware.

I’m thinking maybe I could make one in a really bright colour for the teen? Look out for it in the new issue of Inside Crochet, on sale now.
