Summer Living, Knit Style

Hello 🙂

As I sit to write this post, after a many days of sunshine and gentle breezes… it is pouring down with rain.  As we say in these parts, great weather for ducks!

Issue 93 of Lets Knit Magazine hits the shelves tomorrow and inside I have a few summery projects for you.

Inspired by the beautiful African Flower crochet animals that are all over my social media feeds, this butterfly cushion was born.  I thought to myself, ‘ why should the hookers have all the fun?’

Why not take the basic hexagon pattern and create your own African Flower creatures, I would love to see your pictures.

To compliment the cushion, I also went a little I-cord crazy and designed some bunting and a mobile.  Why not get the children making I-cords using a knitting dolly (French knitting), and use those?

For those of you not as enthused by butterflies as I am, I have something that is just perfect for Al Fresco dining………..

I hope you have enjoyed this months projects as much as I did designing them.

Happy Knitting,  Jane x
