Simply stylish crochet patterns for fashionable makes in modern yarns and colours
Susan Ritchie and Karen Miller are the proprietors of Mrs Moon, an online yarn store, and their mission is to show you how simple it is to create your own modern-casual crochet garments, accessories and homewares. There are easy-to-hook projects in chunky yarns that will grow so fast you'll be finished in a day, and larger or more intricate items that will take longer, but are well worth every stitch you hook in to them. There are pieces that are perfect for beginners to crochet - such as a chevron throw, a simple beanie, or a snuggly cowl - and other projects that introduce lacy and textured stitches so you can expand your skills at your own pace, and with the help of the techniques section at the back of the book. Choose to make a delicately lacy ombre scarf, a hipster granny-square coatigan, or a giant owl amigurumi that children will love. Whatever your skill level, Susan and Karen have designed projects for Simple Chic Crochet that you will love to make for your home, your friends, your family, and of course, yourself.
Mrs Moon is the online yarn store of sisters Susan Ritchie and Karen Miller, who as small children learned to crochet and knit in the yarn and sewing shop their mother ran. Now with families of their own, Susan and Karen have followed in their mother's footsteps, but in 21st-century style. Their online store sells their own yarn line, Plump, a chunky yarn that has been joined by its skinnier sister, Plump DK, and a furry cousin, Fluff. They also design unique patterns, teach bespoke classes, and run crochet and knitting meet-ups, and their first book, Simple Chic Knits, is available from CICO Books. Susan and Karen live in south-west London.
