Introduction to The Crochet Foundry
The Crochet Foundry started earlier this year when a group of crochet designers (who I am lucky enough to call my friends) decided to create collections of seasonal designs for everyone to wear. For so long I think crochet has been considered less than knitting in terms of garments and these guys have proved that simply isn’t the case anymore! Their designs, attention to detail and technical designing skills are flawless meaning that everything in the magazine is both a joy to make and a joy to wear.

Yarn and Hooks
One of the things that really struck me about these winter crochet garment patterns is the fabulous choice of yarn and colours by the designers.
The issue uses a variety of worsted weight yarn from WeCrochet and they have so many to choose from! Here are some of my favourites:
- Swish Yarn – 100% Superwash Merino Wool (110yds/50g)
- Mighty Stitch Yarn – 80% acrylic, 20% wool, (208yds/100g)
- Brava Worsted – 100% premium acrylic (208yds/100g)
- Comfy Worsted – 75% Pima Cotton, 25% acrylic (109yds/50g)
- Wool of the Andes Tweed – 80% Peruvian Highland Wool, 20% Donegal Tweed (110yds/50g)
The hooks that the designers recommend in the issue are from Furls Crochet and are the Streamline Swirl crochet hooks. They come in such beautiful colours and I have a few in my hook collection that I always work with. They are so light and comfy!
