The newest issue of a Inside Crochet magazine found it's way to my door on Friday. as usual it's full of gorgeous patterns, including the last pattern I wrote before my maternity leave.
I particularly love the look of the new mystery blanket. I wish I had time to take it on myself but little Effie is making any kind of craft a pretty difficult challenge right now!
My Paper Dolls cardigan, is a child's cardigan written in sizes 6 months to 7 years. Worked in one piece, bottom up, with raglan shaping and colorwork across the bottom section. Crocheted in King Cole merino blend 4ply yarn using mostly half treble crochet throughout. It's a reasonably simple piece, once you get your head around the colourwork section and once you've completed the dolls the rest of the piece flies by.
I'm so pleased to say the sample has already been loaned out to a friend's little girl until Effie's big enough to fit in it and it looks gorgeous on. So many of my samples end up unworn, neatly put away in my wardrobe it's so nice to see one being put to good use.
As the usual photographer for the magazine (Britt Spring) has returned to Australia, a new photographer Leanne Dixon has taken over and I must say she's done a wonderful job. The photography and styling is it's usual faultless self throughout this months pages
