On the cover of Your Crochet and Knitting!

Your Crochet and Knitting issue 4 has hit the shops and I was so thrilled to see my copy because not only does it feature my twinkle decorations & wrap but my wrap is on the front cover! And the back cover, and even on the editorial page! Wow.

I’m actually pretty bad at celebrating my successes and I’m sure some of you are the same but I’ve decided to really enjoy this moment which is after all the culmination of a lot of hard work.

What successes have you had this week (big or small) – don’t be afraid to shout about them in the comments 😉

Anna’s chunky crochet hat

Hello, I’ve released a new crochet pattern.

Anna’s chunky crochet hat is special to me as I made loads of then last winter while I was on bed rest. It was definitely a case of crafting to stay sane. I gifted most of them as Christmas presents and they were a big hit! This winter I was asked to make a couple more for new arrivals.

The pattern is available in five sizes from newborn to large adult and comes in US and UK versions so you can use whichever terminology you are most comfortable with. There are plenty of beginner friendly photo tutorials.

Do you know someone who would like a hand made hat for Christmas?24C8B6F7-8095-468F-945D-DBB642120E11.jpeg

Test crocheters wanted

96760D1E-5FFA-41F8-9E37-3A763343D852.jpegHello, I’m currently looking for testers for a quick chunky crochet hat. It’s a simple striped hat and is intended to teach simple coloured striping. There are plenty of photo tutorials as well as full written instructions so if you’ve been scared to introduce multiple colours in your crochet this is the pattern for you. It’s also a handy pattern if you’ve just realised that Christmas is fast approaching and you still have a long list of gifts to make as it works up really quicky. I’ve written the pattern for all sizes from baby to large adult.
