LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine | Tearrific Set


Issue 91 of LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine is out now with TWO brand new patterns in it from me! I’m so excited about them both that I’m going to have to do TWO separate blog posts so I can tell you all about them…

latest-issue

So let me tell you about my first design. Now I would class myself as quintessentially British when it comes to tea! I love the stuff! Never mind the English nation – I am probably well within the quota of consuming 32 billion cups a year just by myself. BUT you don’t have to be a fan of that particular hot beverage to enjoy my latest pattern! The Teariffic Teaset amigurumi is the perfect pattern for any cuppa lover – be it tea, coffee or hot chocolate! And with the release of the new Beauty and the Beast movie, where all of the household objects are ‘alive’, wouldn’t it just make the perfect pretend play toy for any movie loving little one.

Capture_medium2a

The set includes instructions for the teacup, separate saucer and movable spoon.

  Capture2_medium2a

I had such fun designing this little tea set and it’s definitely one of my favourite patterns I’ve worked on so far. And I love the colour combination of the Blue Ripple and Fresh Mint colours together from the poolside themed yarn pack in this issue.

If you are not familiar with LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine it’s readily available in major supermarkets and stores across the UK.  The magazine complete with six balls of yarn, a pair of needles and a hook so that you can get started straight away! Why not make yourself a cuppa and hook yourself up one at the same time.

Stay tuned for my next under water themed pattern release update coming NEXT!
