Hugh Metcalf, Editor of Crochet Now, explains that this new issue is inspired by a spectrum of weather, from sunshine to storms (by way of rainbows) as well as the finer details of crochet we like to call the silver linings. We think you're going to be impressed with all the beautiful details - here are just a few highlights for you!

This is Cyril - The Rainbow Caterpillar, kids (and grownups) will love him, a great gift idea.

This gift set is inspired by Cornish pottery. Tea Cozies may be old fashioned but tea appreciation (from the traditional cuppa to fruity brews) is growing again in popularity in the UK. Long live the humble tea cozy!

Or why not try making up this stole, it can be a cozy scarf or a light shawl depending on the weather - perfect for unpredictable spring weather!
