ISSUE 100 SNEAK PEEK

Happy birthday to us! Issue 100 is here and we're so excited to celebrate with our lovely readers in true crafty style. We've packed in a whopping 100 knitting and crochet patterns and eight-ball yarn pack – yes really! – for you to enjoy. Take a peek below at some of the projects you'll find inside. If that wasn't enough, you'll discover amazing giveaways, the latest crafty news and find out all about Yarn Shop Day 2018. We also caught up with Kerry Lord to discuss her pawsome new book, Edward's Menagerie Dogs.

1. DIDDY DINOS

Meet Ethel, Ralph, Frank and Barbara: the cutest reptiles you ever did see. Sarah Louise Read has whipped up this quartet of crochet dinosaurs and we couldn’t be more excited – they’re perfect for playtime with the little ones, and you can teach them all about prehistoric creatures at the same time.

2. KITTY COASTERS

Not only will these quirky cat coasters protect your furniture, they’re great for all occasions too. So whether you want to celebrate our 100th issue with a party as we have, or have a quiet knit and natter, this is the pattern for you. Ella Austin’s embroidery is very simple, so even if you’ve never done it before you’ll be able to master it in no time.

3. PEACHES' NEW OUTFITS

Our favourite dress-up doll has been busy shopping! New to the dating scene, Peaches has enjoyed a touch of retail therapy and she can’t wait to show you her recent purchases. Heather Gibbs’ nine-piece crochet project is great fun to make.

4. CHAMELEONS

We’re embracing vibrant hues more than ever before! Our Party yarn kit lends itself perfectly to Sachiyo Ishii’s eye-catching trio of knitted chameleons who we’ve named Carlos, Chris and Catia. Each chameleon is worked in the same way but just like the real kaleidoscopic creatures, there are several colour switches to keep an eye out for.

5. PARTY DOG

What better way to commemorate 100 issues of Let's Get Crafting than with Cento? Pronounced ‘chento’, the name means 100 in Italian, which we thought was rather fitting for our party pup. Donning his favourite hat and amazing crocheted balloons, Heather Gibbs’ colourful pattern makes the perfect birthday gift for your loved ones and it’s super fun to make too.

6. SOFA ORGANISER

We love knitting accessories for our favourite craft spot, so Dawn Finney’s explosion of colour is next on our to-knit list. Don’t forget to weight your organiser evenly on each side – it’s a great excuse to store some sneaky chocolate and extra knitting supplies.

7. CACTCUS CUSHION

Cacti have been on trend for a long time, so jump on the crafty bandwagon and make an accessory that will brighten up your home and be admired by your guests. Kath Webber’s fun crochet cushion uses every colour in your kit to embrace the eight-ball Party pack!

8. SNAZZY PATCHES

Stand out from the crowd by crocheting Sarah-Jane Hicks’ decorative patches. Picture them on denim jackets, cardis, jumpers, tops, jeans, bags… the list goes on and on! We’ve also got unicorn and ‘YAY!’ motifs for you to try out – and hopefully they’ll inspire you to make many more to share with your nearest and dearest. How about starting a patch swap with your pals?

9. DISCO MOUSE

Millie the mouse loves to boogie to Chaka Khan and her favourite film is Saturday Night Fever, so she’s the kind of girl you want around. Nicola Valiji has used every colour in your Party pack to ensure her outfit matches her vivid personality. Many parts of this pattern are repetitive, so you can sit back and be mindful as you make her. Have fun embroidering those decorative finishing touches!

10. BIRTHDAY CUPCAKES

What’s a birthday bash without cake? Nestle these guilt-free treats amongst your sweet bakes for an extra pop of colour at the party table. Whilst Hannah Cooper’s cupcakes make great decorative accessories, why not use yours as pincushions or even toys for the little ones? Don’t forget to take pictures of your makes in action and share them with us on Facebook and https://twitter.com/LetsGetCrafting?lang=en-gb.

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

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...
