Summer’s here and we’re hooking up all sorts of fringed and beaded goodies in time for festival season – make a swishy waistcoat and bag in scrummy chenille, a colourful camera strap with simple embroidery, a beautiful shawl and more. Work botanical beauty with a must-hook flower crown and whip up some exclusive Attic 24 bunting.
Try cool, crisp cottons in this month’s yarn review, and spruce up your summer sneakers with a new pair of handmade laces. Plus, find out how to beat a creative dry spell with our insightful guide. We’ve got the perfect projects for spoiling a summer baby as well. Get cracking with a sweet Sirdar blanket with a hearts and picots border, and then try your hook at ouradorable football boot slippers (you can make them in adult sizes, too).
Plus, make sure you don’t miss Joanne Scrace’s retro cushion, our chat with designer Simone Francis and one very cute butterfly amigurumi doll.
