Hi makers! We’ve got a brand new issue to get you in the mood for autumn. Issue 121 is now on sale and it’s got a little bit of everything – some chunky knitting, new techniques and a sprinkling of (whisper it) early Christmas joy. Plus, you’ll get two amazing gifts when you buy your mag in store – a tasselled crochet wall hanging kit and a fancy bamboo crochet hook. You’ll be able to find a copy in most UK supermarkets, WHSmith, Hobbycraft or online here. So without further ado here’s our fall-inspired issue.
Projects inside your new issue…
Your bonus gift
We love colourful crochet and it doesn’t get jazzier than Sarah-Jane Hicks’ boho wall hanging. Sarah created this fab little wall hanging as issue 121’s gift so you can brighten up your home and your day – hang your new creation on your wall, keys, door handle or even save it for your Christmas tree.
This month’s special papers

Meet Nicole Crowder and Kate McGuire
In issue 121 we sat down with the wonderful Nicole Crowder, a Washington-based upholstery designer who creates incredible furniture. Nicole shows us it’s never too late to change your career and make a successful business from craft.
Oxfam has also just launched Second Hand September, an initiative encouraging people to pledge shopping second-hand only for 30 days or more. We love shopping second-hand and are always looking for ways to be more sustainable, so we were super inspired by Kate McGuire, creator of Converted Closet, as she shows people how to turn neglected clothes into fashionable new garments.
Pick up a copy of 121 to read both these lovely ladies’ stories. You’ll come away feeling inspired and ready to craft!
We hope you love 121 as much as we do! We’ve got some amazing social takeovers lined up too, so make sure you’re following us on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. And, if you want to get the next issue of Mollie delivered straight to your door, click here to subscribe.
