ISSUE 99 SNEAK PEEK

1. STRIPY SCARF

Brighten up your springtime outfits with this simple knitted scarf. Just by repeating four rows, Ella Austin has crafted this beautiful accessory. The repetitive nature of this design makes it an incredibly relaxing project, perfect for a chilled Sunday. The colours complement each other really well and could even be paired with a fluffy yellow trim or tassels.

2. PARTY RINGS

Wow your guests with our retro crochet party rings. These fun, sweet treats are a firm favourite and are simply an essential at any birthday bash! Featuring signature iced decorative ribbons, Hannah Cooper's adorable bakes are sure to take centre stage at the party table. Or, why not string them together to create a garland?

3. EASTER BASKET

Go on an eggcellent chocolate hunt with a knitted Easter basket. Just like our lovely model Lola, the little ones will be absolutely eggstatic when they spot this colourful creation. Dawn Finney’s pattern uses two strands of yarn to add extra strength and rigidity to your work – it’s a great way of using your kit without having to swap yarn weight.

4. BOW TIE

Your eyes are not deceiving you, that’s a real bunny wearing a crocheted bow tie. It really isn’t Easter unless there’s a suited and booted rabbit amongst the pages of Let’s Get Crafting. Well, that’s what we told ourselves when Reeses the bunny was hopping around our photography studio. Heather Gibbs’ beginner-friendly bow tie can be enjoyed by anyone – human or animal!

ISSUE 99 SNEAK PEEK

5. FLUFFY CHICKS

Sachiyo Ishii’s chicks are the cutest, fluffiest things we ever did see. They're the perfect Easter project to get started on this weekend and you can make all three with your fleecy yellow yarn! Grab your knitting needles and watch an entire nestful materialise right before your eyes.

6. BREAKFAST PALS

Is there anything better than tasty boiled eggs and soldiers at Easter? We can't wait to add a splash of colour to the breakfast table with Fiona Goble’s knitted egg cosies. The project includes all four characters so you can craft a colourful quartet of farm animals to keep your boiled eggs cosy over the spring break.

7. ISABELLA BUNNY

Hop to it and make the charming Isabella bunny. Use every yarn in your Hoppy kit to crochet our delightful rabbit, who is the epitome of Easter. Spend time getting her features just right... two short lines of black embroidery thread create eyelashes, while a safety nose in a peachy shade is subtle and sweet. A touch of blusher – Heather Gibbs just uses some from her own make-up collection! – can make all the difference too.

ISSUE 99 SNEAK PEEK

8. FISHING GAME

You’ll have a whale of a time with our interactive game. Try all four sea-dwellers or knit a few of your fishy favourites, either way this project is easy to make and can be whipped up on a crafty weekend. Your free ribbon works perfectly as a fishing line!

9. DOLL'S HOUSE FURNITURE: PART THREE

The final part of our doll’s house furniture crochet-along is here! The sweetie shades make the perfect starting point for a little one's nursery design. Don’t forget, you can find the pattern for the living room here and click here to make the bedroom.

10. ROSE & VIOLET THE HEDGEHOGS

Sharpen up your skills with Sachiyo Ishii's adorable pair. These friendly creatures are rapidly becoming a rare sight, so we wanted to pay homage to the humble hedgehog in issue 99. For the spines, we have opted for loop stitches which is a great way to add volume and try new techniques.
