so long, 2020

We have finally arrived at the end of the year; a long time coming I think you’ll agree. Let’s welcome a fresh new year in with a calm and positive outlook, by hooking something from our zen homewares collection on page 14 to rejuvenate your space. If your New Year’s resolution is to be mindful of your carbon footprint, then our eco crochet supplement is essential reading. And for amigurumi fans the Rosa Parks doll on page 32 will inspire us all to stand up for equality. Whatever you choose to hook, we wish you all a happy New Year full of crochet joy. Share your makes on Instagram tagged #sctreblemaker, or on our Facebook group Simply Crochet SCtreblemakers, as we love to see them!…
