The nine designs in this issue 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 summer tops and tees, a cardigan, a shawl, and a crochet bag – all light and breezy for warmer days.
Featuring designs by: AMY CHRISTOFFERS // SARI NORDLUND // SORAYA GARCÍA // ISA CATEPILLÁN // CLARE LAKEWOOD // JOSÉE PAQUINE // MARJORIE MARTIN // RACHAEL REESE // STEPHANIE EARP
This issue includes an interview with Emi Ito, who answers our questions of creativity and misappropriation. ‘Learning and Unlearning’ unpicks the issues of cultural appropriation and diversity: important topics which we have been re-evaluating.
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 Arrounna 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 her Maple Bourbon Fudge is an easy way to whip up an impressive sweet treat to share with friends.
