Summer is just around the corner! The nine designs in Issue 29 were inspired by ceramic tiles, terracotta, and sand, so expect earthy shades with splashes of colour and organic, repeating patterns. For your summer wardrobe, we have essential tops and tees, a cardigan, a shawl, and a crochet bag – all light and breezy for warmer days.
We’re excited that we’ve finally been able to add extra pages to the magazine. This means more room for the gorgeous photography you love, an increased font size, and a wider range of sizes for some patterns (with the aim for all patterns in future issues).
This issue includes an interview with Emi Ito, who answers our questions on creativity and misappropriation. ‘Learning and Unlearning’ unpicks the issues of cultural appropriation and diversity, important topics we have been reevaluating.
We also have yarn-free projects to enjoy while the sun shines. If you’re on the lookout for a new craft to try, we have a project bag tutorial by artist Arounna Khounnoraj, of Bookhou. She’ll show you how to block-print your own fabric, perfect for creating your own tile-inspired, tessellating patterns! Plus Rebecca Lawrence’s recipe for Maple Bourbon Fudge which whips up easily as an impressive sweet treat to share with friends.
Let those dreamy summer days begin!
