Coming soon! Jane Crowfoot’s stunning new Climbing Rose Wrap crochet-along. Jane has shared her story of this beautiful, Victorian-style design with us.
"I have always been a fan of the work of the Arts and Crafts Movement and, having worked in a home decorating store part-time as a student, I am very familiar with William Morris’s wallpaper designs in particular. I started off thinking that my design inspiration for this project would be Morris’s very well-known design ‘The Strawberry Thief’, which is one of my favourites, but I was concerned about how I could produce the idea of strawberries and birds in crochet, so I looked at traditional Victorian garden flowers and used these as the basis for my motifs instead."
Pattern only available in Inside Crochet magazine. Starts in issue 117, on sale 22 August and will run over 4 issues through to November. Sneak preview image © Inside Crochet magazine/Leanne Dixon
