Try 3 issues of Simply Crochet magazine for just £5

Originally launched in August 2016, and appearing in issues 49 to 61 of Simply Crochet, our very first CAL proved a hit with our subscribers around the world. If you missed it, or if you’d like to dive in again, all 12 patterns have now been collected in a handy finished project PDF booklet that is available to buy from Raverly here!


The Pick ’n’ Mix crochet-along blanket is made up of 12 vibrant squares in total, each worked in two different colourways of fantastic Cascade 220 yarn (100% Peruvian Highland wool).


It's a great project to really push your crochet skills and learn a variety of new techniques and stitches. If you want to hook up this gorgeous blanket, you can find the full pattern here!


But if you'd like to catch up on issues 49-61, you can still buy these issues as digital editions, for Apple phones and tablets, Android phones and tablets, the Barnes & Noble Nook, and to read through Zinio as PDFs. Click here to find the right version for you.
