Totally Tropical


We all need a bit of colourful whimsy during these warm summer days, and my tropical Bunting certainly fits the bill.  I was completely self indulgent with this design, I just made exactly what I would love to have hanging in my garden. I just need to persuade Mr T to organise a summer party, so we can fill the garden with colour, friends and laughter.

You can find the pattern in Issue 103 of Inside Crochet Magazine, and there are plenty more gorgeous photos on Ravelry. I’m thrilled with the styling (thank you Kath and Claire) and the photography (thankyou Kirsten Mavric). The yarn is Scheepjes Catona, which was perfect for this. The palette is full of vibrant, tropical shades and it’s so smooth to crochet with. I’m toying with the idea of making table weights using the watermelon and cherries from this pattern, would that be too much do you think???


THis issue is still on sale, and it’s filled with bright, fun projects for summer. Look out for it in your news agent, or buy the digital version here.
