spring cheer

This time is year is filled with the promise of things to come, from those first blooms in the garden to the lazy bank holidays ahead. So, we’ve echoed this sentiment with plenty of makes that’ll bring just as much joy. Hook up your free gift in a spare evening to cheer up a wall, then step up your crochet game with our tactile bobble stitch cushion on page 63. Or, embrace a slower pace of crafting with our patchwork quilt on page 58, naturally-dyeing your own fabric first. One event I’m especially excited for is the 2018 Mollie Makes Handmade Awards.

crochet mandala kit

Stitch your sunshine “After such a long, cold winter, I was keen to embrace the sunny pastel colours of spring in the design for this crochet mandala. The central floral motif reminds me of a gerbera, which is one of my favourite flowers, and who doesn’t love a happy yellow border to brighten up a room? The design is made up of a variety of simple crochet stitches to create the floral and leafy design, and the blue round uses a spike stitch to add some texture. I’ll be hanging mine from a beautiful ribbon in my daughter’s bedroom window, which gets really fabulous sunlight when the sun actually shines!” Lucy is a crochet designer and technical editor, and mum to a feisty three-year-old and a soon-to-arrive little one. Find her on Insta…
