Massive congratulations to LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine on their 100th issue that went on sale 5 April! I was honoured to help commemorate issue 100 of by creating the little Party Pup featured as this month’s cover star.
Let’s Get Crafting held a competition for the dogs name and the end result was Cento? Pronounced ‘chento’, the name means 100 in Italian, I thought it was a great name for the little guy.
Donning his favourite hat and crocheted balloons, which with a little bit of wire help, float in the air. This colourful pattern would make a great birthday gift for your friends and loved ones simply by personalising the number you add to the balloons.
And the most exciting news – Let’s Get Crafting are giving everyone a present by making him available ontopcrochetpatterns.com for free! So quick go get your copy..
This month I also got to visit with an old friend, Peaches the doll, who came to me on a shopping trip for some new clothes…
She picked up shoes, a handbag, a dress, a skirt, two tops and some dungarees! Boy can that girl shop!
I really had great fun designing a new wardrobe full of clothes for her. As well as these two patterns the magazine is filled with competitions, articles and an awesome knitted chameleon pattern (I need to learn to knit shapes!).
The magazine also comes with a free special yarn kit with eight lovely bright party colours and;
- 3mm hook & 3mm needles
- 47 exclusive patterns
- Plus… your 68 page magazine
