Simply Crochet issue 53 is on sale now, and 2017 is going to be the year of the mandala. This issue, you’ll find the first mandala in our new series and all kinds of exciting hooky treats.
In issue 53 we’ve also fallen for mohair in a big way – it makes a gorgeous light, fluffy and warm fabric that works up incredibly quickly because you use a big hook.
We’ve also got beautiful blankets, cosy textured stitches, and a sparkly ombre shawl – your winter is sorted. Challenge yourself this new year with a new technique – in this issue you’ll find our guide to raised ripple stitch, plus two patterns to use it. Plus you can discover our first ever Hook to Hook designer challenge, featuring Emma Potter and Kath Webber.
