LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine | Rainbow Chameleon and Lulu Lobster

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.
