New Design: Kid’s Cardigan

Well, just look at this little cutie! I am so thrilled with the photography and styling of my latest project for Inside Crochet magazine – as always Claire MontgomerieĀ  really knows how to show off a simple design. The Merienda cardigan pattern comes in sizes 54cm – 72cm and is suitable for beginners who have mastered basic stitches, increasing and decreasing. The vibrant colours are from the King Cole 100% Merino range, which is a joy to work with and washes well. The buttons were an impulse buy last year, but they go perfectly with the yarn (another reason to always have a well stocked button tin!).

Issue 98 is still on sale – but be quick – issue 99 is due to hit the stores very soon. If you prefer, you can always purchase a digital copy here. As always there are lots of projects I want to make, Anne farmer’s cute little make up bag would be the perfect weekend project and Helda Pangary’s motif scarf is so beautiful.

I am really excited to share my next design for Inside Crochet – it’s a real corker – probably my best yet – but you’ll have to wait for issue 100 to see it (or check out Inside Crochet’s Instagram stories for a sneaky peek and see if you can spot it!
