Be The Change: 7 Ways To Knit & Crochet For Charity

In the world we live in today, it’s more important than ever to use our skills in a truly positive way by helping those in need.

Crochet Zodiac - Capricorn
Crochet Zodiac - Capricorn

Welcome to our first Crochet Zodiac, which this month is devoted to Capricorn! Those born under this sign are known for being practical, patient and disciplined – all very useful traits when embarking on a new project. You ensure you've got all the right yarns and tools first, plus you'll read the pattern at least twice before starting, rather than risk any mistakes. What's more, you're always working hard to improve your skills so you can move on to more advanced techniques, and won't give up on a project once it's started. However, you Capricorns can sometimes be your own harshest critics, feeling that you're not doing as much or as well as you should. You can also be quite shy, but crafters are a friendly bunch – why not seek out a local crochet group or join an online community such as Ravelry? Not only will you be able to ask for advice if you get stuck – and share your own tips in return – you'll get to make new friends who share your passion! In the meantime, why not treat yourself to something special from our list below...

Still, it's a great way to welcome in the New Year – plus an opportunity to sneak in a bit of crochet as you watch! Here's our round-up of projects you can be working on, whilst peeping out from behind the sofa...
