Ooo it’s very exciting! LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine Issue 110 is on sale now and my Rainbow Chameleon is the cover star!!
I love chameleons, I know they look sort of weird but I think that’s exactly what I like about them.
As soon as I saw the yarn’s for this issue I knew he had to be made in a rainbow – not exactly great camouflage but I do so love a rainbow!

I also made another pattern for issue 110 which was Lulu the Lobster. I’ve always wanted to have a go at making a lobster amigurumi, but the obvious challenge to that is making the lobster look cute, because let’s face it lobster aren’t really known for their appealing looks!
What do you think? Did I succeed?

This month I’ve also contributed to an article called Crafting the Best Toys where, along with other toy makers, we share some top tips with you on crafting both crochet and knitted amigurumis.
There are lots of fab things in this month’s edition; I really love the sweet little Granny Square eco friendly pattern of the Beeswax envelopes by Corinee Bradd and I also love Flora and Fleur the flowers pattern by Sarah Louise Reed – my daughter wants them for her bedroom!
And although I can’t knit I really love the Acrobatic areoplanes pattern by Nicola Valiji (which are available for FREE) and the gorgeous knitted pattern Jessica flamingo by Sachiyo Ishii.
There are 43 exclusive patterns in this months edition and you get your yarn and 3.5mm hook and 3.5mm knitting needles included with your 68 page magazine.
LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine is available in major supermarkets and newsagents across the UK.
If you hook up either the Chameleon or the Lobster I hope you’ll share your photos with me on social media (facebook, twitter or instagram) or as a project on Ravelry – I love to see what you make!
Until next time folks! Happy hooking, keep calm and crochet on my friends xx

Hi, I’m having trouble with the rainbow chameleon pattern from issue 110 and hoped you might be able to help?! The head pattern, Round 2 says you do (1dc,2dc in nxt st) making 18 sts which I have done fine, but Round 3 says you do (2dc,2dc in nxt st) and should make 24sts?? I make this 36? I’m so confused! Hoping you can help me!
Hi Leanne, so sorry for only just replying, I think it’s the way the magazine writes it, it should be 1dc in the next 2sts, 2dc in the next making the 24sts.
