Swooping into Summer with knit and crochet patterns which will make your soul soar! For Issue 37, we asked the designers to take their inspiration from the alluring textures and glorious colours of birds. These talented individuals have taken our cue and stretched their wings! We were so impressed with their imaginative interpretations of our theme as they have thought so carefully about every aspect of these animals: from the shape of their footprints in snow to their sky formations. Within the pages of our Summer 2021 collection, you can expect nine patterns which are as elegant and dynamic as the airborne creatures they reference.
In addition to 9 knit and crochet patterns, a recipe, an article, and a tutorial are nested into the pages of PPQ37! Fiona Churchmanblew us away with her recipe for Feather Bread (a pandan coconut milk loaf) inspired by the treats she used to buy from London's Chinatown bakeries before lockdown! Be sure to read Solène Le Roux's insightful musings on how birds and humans can adapt to their surroundings. And Nuria Casadella-Puigvert of GANXXET walks you through how to make colourful chains for your sunglasses and face masks for when you're out and about this summer! Included in your digital download of PPQ37 is a bonus tutorial from Nuria which shows you how to make a chain for your binoculars or camera - perfect for spotting birds and snapping a photo of them.
