Inside Issue 10…

This month, we’re off to the woods with our hook and yarn, taking Mother Nature as our muse. There are 33 pretty projects inside, fit for wild things and adventurers – mitts and boot cuffs with bobbles, a granny scarf, scrummy blanket and darling little acorn charms that can be worn as a necklace. If you’re passionate about all things botanical, then you’ll love our collection of oak leaf makes, including super-stylish collar motifs, a fabulous hat pin, a chunky cuff and a silk and wool boa – delicious. After your forest stroll, get cracking with Ros Badger’s lacy pebble covers – they’re worked in smooth cotton to show off the natural beauty of the stones.

The arrival of autumn means that Halloween is on its way. Jane Crowfoot shares some of her family’s DIY traditions for the holiday and draws inspiration from ‘Day of the Dead’ celebrations, too. Plus, this month’s motif is a sweet and spangly cobweb – cool and creepy.

Layering up for the new season doesn’t mean you can’t be feminine. Make Robyn Chachula’s charming sweater in a delicate rose shade. The three-quarter sleeves and open stitches mean it’s a must-hook garment for those autumn in-between days. There’s a fabulous scallop-edged headband with a bow to hook as well. Accessories are quick projects and great as gifts, so hook Nicky Hale’s 1920s-inspired beaded cuff, or a loopy statement necklace. There’s also a romantic ruffle that’s fantastic for updating a dress or top.

This issue will also give you the chance to pick up some new skills – learn to perfect your finishing with an adorable fox purse, and find out all about Irish crochet. Plus, don’t miss our amigurumi apple picker doll and a duo of mug hugs.

    Hi there, I was wondering if there was an error in the pattern for the fox purse. When I follow the pattern for the semi circles – I end up with 1/4″ circles instead. Do I make 2 in each colour? Thanks so much!

    I am working on the cozy bear cowl from issue 10 and my pattern does not look like the one pictured. Is it possible that the dc’s are supposed to be sc’s or are they different because this is a British publication? I was about 3/4’s done when I realized it’s WAY TOO big. Thanks!!
