Hello summer and hello crochet!

We’ve been gearing-up for the summer months and if you saw our last blog, you’ll know that we’ve been making hats and shawls for the hot days and cooler evenings.


To ramp-up our productivity, we’re adding bags to our crafting list. More specifically, a crochet clutch bag for those lovely late dinners, a boho bag for casual daytime strolls and a crochet beach bag.


Whether you’re jet-setting to sunnier climes or having a ‘staycation’, there’s so many crafty crochet projects perfect for this season.


Crochet HookWe’ve got this great versatile crochet tank top pattern, perfect on its own for hot summer days and then layered-up in winter. If you’re looking to make something for those chilly summer evenings, then why not try our Sophie crochet cardigan pattern?


If you’re just starting out with crochet, then we recommend getting some hooks and learning by getting stuck-in. Pick-up a book or watch a tutorial – but stick to one style because some common terms are translated differently between American and English. If you keep up your practise, you’ll get the hang of it in no time.


We all needle little help sometimes and Woolyknit offers one-to-one lessons to assist people of all abilities. “I love showing people how to crochet and get them going with it,” says crochet-guru Sandra.
