falling for autumn

Autumn makes it to my top spot in the league table of favourite seasons. Not only due to changing colours and crisp mornings, but mainly because shorter days mean longer projects! Yup, if you want me I’ll be on the sofa, hook in hand! There’s plenty in this issue to lure you sofa-bound too. Our slouchy cover star jumper is definitely on my list and I’ll be joining the pocket wrap trend (and indulging my pompom obsession) with our gorgeous version on page 56. Autumn also means Halloween so we’ve conjured up a quick bunting make on page 49 for spooky celebrations. Do share your pictures on Instagram tagged #sctreblemaker, or on our Facebook group Simply Crochet SCtreblemakers, as we love seeing them!…
