Once upon a time, in a far away land, a crochet designer that was asked to design an enchanting princess doll…four months later Princess Jessica appeared on the front cover of issue 98 of LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine (on sale now) and the crochet designer lived happily ever after!
Have you seen it? I was super excited to see Princess Jessica as this month’s cover star! What a lovely start to the year.
I was really keen to make her a little bit more of a modern princess which is why she is supporting a chic ‘Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ inspired up do. A hairstyle which happens to be the perfect fit for a tiara!
As well as Princess Jessica there’s also a mini pattern series by me of little love tokens which includes; love bird key rings, a mini heart gift bag, a heart brooch and a heart handbag charm. They all make really quick valentines gifts or, if you are like me, you can just crochet loads of puffy hearts because they are super fun to make.
The free yarn kit with issue 98 includes six lovely bright colours which are just perfect for cheering anyone up in gloomy January. In this month’s issue you’ll find:
- Six posy yarns…including a special eyelash yarn!
- 3.5 mm hook & 3.5 mm knitting needles
- Bonus safety eyes
- 55 exclusive patterns
- Plus… a 68 page magazine
LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine is available in major supermarkets and newsagents across the UK. If you hook up either Princess Jessica or any of the Love Tokens be sure to share your photos with me on social media(facebook, twitter or instagram) – I love to see what you make!
Until next time folks! Happy hooking, keep calm and crochet on my friends xx
