I know it’s only the beginning of November but as a crafter you are probably thinking a little bit about Christmas already am I right? And probably have started making already!
I know it takes time to make the perfect gift but I thought I’d tell you about a couple of projects that have just been released in the latest issue of LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine. They don’t take too long if you are still looking for some fun things to make.
In the latest edition of the magazine (on sale now) I’ve created a fun Christmas Coupe complete with a detachable Christmas tree. I love how the magazine have styled it! It looks just like a Christmas card don’t you think!
It was such a fun design to make, in fact I’m thinking of designing something similar but much much smaller as a Christmas ornament if I get the time! I love crocheting ornaments, do you?
Also in this issue I had fun creating a new little elf character. Everly the Elf is a bit of a mischievous character, she recently tried to make some mince pies for everyone at the magazine – but she seems to have gotten into a bit of a pickle!
Again such cute styling in this issue, it really is making me feel rather Christmassy. And you’ve got to have elves around at Christmas haven’t you! They are the ones that make the toys in Santa’s workshop and take care of his reindeer after all!
There are lots of other fab things in this month’s edition too – the patterns I particularly love are the crochet (and knit) Father Christmas by Sachiyo Ishii, which are both adorable, and the tic tac toe christmas game by Hannah Cooper is such a sweet idea! And although I can’t personally knit I absolutely love the look of the Toy Soldiers (on the front cover) by Sachiyo Ishii and the Mini Jumpers by Dawn Finney too.
There are 40 festive patterns in this months edition along with news, articles and tips in the 70 page magazine. It also comes with an ten ball yarn pack and hooks and needles.
LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine is available in major supermarkets and newsagents across the UK.
If you hook up either the Christmas Coupe or Everly the Elf the 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
