On trend with crochet
Crochet knits have made regular appearances on fashion catwalks in recent years and home crocheting is making something of a comeback too. In honour of this trend, DMC has launched four new crochet kits – a simple white lacy Bolero, a classic home wall hanging, a contemporary and pretty child's dress and some colourful crocheted balls. All the kits include DMC Natura yarn, a clear and easy to- follow crochet pattern and a crochet hook. The balls also include a bag of stuffing.
The new kits are aimed at those who have a basic knowledge of crochet stitches but would like to create something that they can either wear, use or give as a present. A range of 34 wonderful colours of Natura yarn mean many more versions of the designs can be completed too. RRP for the kits is £17.99.
