With Crochet gaining new fans and a following from a much wider age range, we wanted to create a magazine that catered for those who were new to the craft, but didn't want to alienate those who have been crocheting a bit (or a lot) longer.
We aim to provide crochet patterns that tick all the boxes - fun, fresh, vibrant, challenging - modern styles or retro chic - with 'how to crochet' tutorials and guides for those who are just taking up the hook (and those who need a little refresher course!), with Advanced Skills and Special Techniques every once in a while. With a great mix of clothes, accessories and homeware, there will be something to tickle everyones fancy.
Patterns are not pitched at a particular level - instead, we list the techniques used in each pattern even before you buy it so you can decide for yourself if it's for you. Who's to say what's difficult anyway? Pah - not us!!
We are Designer Friendly too. All our contributing designers have the option of using their pattern as we've produced it - complete with tech editing, photography and layout. They can either take a share in the sales fees or go for an up-front payment. They've got to earn a living too!
Unlike print magazines, we are able to bring you the very latest in news and reviews at the drop of a hat in our 'News' section. It's like a blog, but different. Although it might be the same, we're not sure yet - let's see how it goes! Anyway, do check it out every so often - there will be offers, competitions, yarn, general hookiness and much, much more.
With a new issue being released every quarter, there will be something interesting to read or another project to add to your queue. Sign up in the bar to the left, so we can notify you when each issue goes live!
