Friday magazine review

"Inside Crochet" issue 7
April/May 2010
UK crochet terms

This latest issue of Inside crochet is focusing on the broomstick lace crochet technique which I've yet to have a go at. The section showing you how to do the broomstick lace technique is clear and has good photographs of the different steps involved. With this and 3 patterns for broomstick lace items including a really nice cardigan I'm very tempted to give it a go myself.

Apart from that though there wasn't much in this issue that really appealed to me. The little crochet dress which is also shown on the front cover does look very sweet, but for some reason this issue seems to have focused on hats, scarves and wraps - not really very seasonal for a April/May issue!

There is also a really good article about Shauna Richardson who does the 'crochetdermied' animal pieces which was a really interesting read. If you haven't heard of her work then you should go and have a look at some of the amazing pieces she has done on her website
