My designs are featured twice in Simply Crochet Issue 74!

Published by Ruth Haydock on

I am so very very proud to share that a design of mine appears not once but TWICE in Issue 74 of Simply Crochet this month ❤️

My Solar System Mobile is part of the Cosmic Ideas section (see the full picture of it on page 20) and my Crochet Globe is on the final page in the Hooky Treasures feature 🌍

I have been super excited about these designs coming out in the magazine, which I have known about it for a few months now, but I wasn’t allowed to share it until it came out in the magazine.

But now I can tell you all about it and I am keen to share the inspiration for my designs with you.

The Inspiration for my Designs

Solar System

The Solar System is one of the designs that I hold most dear to my heart. As a huge fan of science fiction, I have always loved learning about the cosmos and imagining myself travelling through the stars, past purple nebulas and rocky planets.

One of the movies that I could watch over and over again is the 2009 Star Trek reboot. I can’t really articulate why I like it so much, it might be that in the movie you see what it is like to leave Earth and go onto the Star ships, which makes it feel so much more real. I would love to be able to fly to the moon and back in my lifetime – if only!

This design enables me to feel like I am in space and reminds me to dream of beyond our planet.

Favourite my Solar System on Ravelry

The Solar System is available in Simply Crochet Issue 74 and will be available to buy in my Ravelry store in 6 months time.

For now though, go favourite the design and when you buy the magazine please share the solar system you have made with me by adding your project on Ravelry. 

Crochet Globe

I have always felt more like a citizen of earth than belonging to a particular country, as I have lived all over the world and feel like I identify with different aspects of many cultures as opposed to one. So creating a Crochet Globe was one of the first things that I wanted to design.

I love having the globe sitting around my home for friends to throw around, pick up and talk to me about. Having it around reminds me of who I am and where I am from.

My Crochet Globe pattern is available to buy in my Ravelry Store .

When you make a Crochet Globe please do upload your project to Ravelry so I can see your amazing pictures.

A dream come true

I am so pleased that two of my favourite crochet designs are featured in Simply Crochet, it really is a dream come true for me! A dream that I didn’t think I would achieve for a while or… ever!

At the beginning of 2018 I put in my dream jar that I wanted to have a pattern in Simply Crochet, and so far this year I have had two full patterns in Simply Crochet 😱 my Solar System and my Fossil & Sand cowl

It is a dream come true for me to be able to share these patterns with you and I really hope that you love making them as much as I do!
