Simply Crochet Magazine Issue 37 Spots and stripes

 

The chunky gifts in the spots and stripes story this month use a mix of Freedom Wool and Erika Knight Maxi Wool – they are the perfect combo for creating wonderfully soft and cosy items that work up in a flash (a 10mm hook is fast becoming my favourite!)

My chunky wrap is a fun mixture of textures using ribbing for the stripes and clusters for the bobbles, it’s great to make and keeps you warm as you work – bonus!

Wrap it, swish it, drape it, it’s long enough and cosy enough to wear it just how you like.
