Yay! Simply Crochet issue 71 and I’m very excited to say that I’ve got a brand new blanket pattern inside which is perfect for summer picnics.
I’d like to introduce the Sierra Summer Diamond Blanket…
Add a little touch of flair and warmth to your outdoor parties with my fun geometric bold granny diamond blanket…
Made with Stylecraft Special Double Knit this blanket is made up from lots of lovely diamond motifs made in the round and then joined together. I do so love a motif, they are small and relatively fast to hook up so you feel like you are accomplishing something quickly and they are easy to take out and about with you.
Move over orange and black, the way forward is definitely orange and navy!
As well as my blanket there are some other great patterns in the magazine, it’s got a very sporty vibe this month with, amongst other things, a fab stylish sporty t-shirt, some great socks (I still need to crochet me some socks!) an uber-cool Tunisian jean trims pattern from my lovely friend Eleonora’s from Coastal Crochet and I just adore
the adorable Jammy Dodger tape measure free kit with the print edition – I’m definitely going to be making that at some point!
Simply Crochet issue 71 is now available both in-store at and online and they also offer worldwide subscriptions! If you do make the Sierra Summer Diamond Blanket I hope you’ll share a photo with me on social media (facebook, twitter or instagram) – I love to see it!
Until next time, keep calm and crochet on my friends x
