Moorit Magazine issue 1
(magazine en anglais)
It's the debut issue! The very first issue of Moorit is a celebration of our love for crochet... for its innate beauty, for its versatility, and for its suitability to all types of garments and accessories. The designs showcase a wide, but in no way exhaustive, range of techniques, including Tunisian, tapestry and intarsia colourwork, front/back posts stitches, and amigurumi.
Issue 1 features three sweaters, a vest, a skirt, a pair of socks, 2 shawls, a hat, a matching cowl and mitten set, and an amigurumi design. Plus, there's an embroidered handkerchief project to make and an article about the impact of industrialisation on garment fitting.
The coordinating spraoi cowl and mittens set is made in Biches & Bûches Le Petit Lambswool (photo number 5) and makes for a joyous duo with its cartwheeling colourwork pinwheels. They have the look of traditional colourwork knitting, but they are crochet through and through! While the split stitch mimics the ‘v’ of knitted stocking stitch, the resulting fabric is much denser.
