Summer Rebel originally appeared in the Autumn 2017 issue of Create Magazine. It is an uncomplicated design that will take you from late summer through to early winter. Made in Nurturing Fibres’ Eco Fusion, this is a timeless piece that you have to add to your wardrobe. Yarn: Eco Fusion Designer: Brenda GroblerThe Namos Flower is such a versatile little motif. Make loads and crochet together as a throw, or make a poncho, or a simple shell top, the choice is yours. Lizelle designed the flower in memory of her dad that passed away in March. He loved wild flowers, especially those from the Namaqualand region in South Africa. Yarn: Eco-Fusion / Eco-Cotton BonBons (all our yarn bases would be terrific for this pattern) Designer: Lizelle MostertBrighton is an easy living pullover, perfect for Autumn and Spring. Made with Eco-Fusion, this light garment will become a wardrobe staple. The pullover has interesting sleeve details and the longer back than a front will create a flattering silhouette. Yarn: Eco-Fusion Alternative Yarn: For a warmer version, use SuperTwist Sock, but be sure to do a gauge sample first. Adjust hook as necessary. Designer: Brenda Grobler Difficulty level: EasyYarn: Eco-Bamboo Designer: Carlé Dehning Skill Level: Easy The Weekender is a fun and easy make. Using a large hook, this is easily made up in a couple of hours. Use only two colours, or a number of colours in the same palette; this pattern was created for experimentation and fun. The Eco-Bamboo gives it exceptional drape and a gorgeous lustre.Yarn: Eco-Cotton, Eco-Fusion or Eco-Bamboo Designer: Brenda Grobler We, at Nurturing Fibres HQ, strive to keep our footprint on the environment as light as possible. Amongst other things, we don't use plastic bags to shop anymore. But we know how super busy moms can be. With careers, with kids, with everyday stuff. Remembering to take the fabric bags along for the weekly shop might not be at the top of the list! This is where the Moscow Market Bag comes in. Firstly, it can be made in any one of our three Eco ranges of yarns and the best part is, that it has a handy little pouch as part of the design, so the entire bag can be folded and stored in even the smallest of handbags. The entire project uses only two balls of yarn in contrasting colours and only takes a few hours to complete, making it an easy AND economical project. PS. We used this bag extensively during our recent visit to Russia and it was brilliant!Yarn: Eco-Fusion Designer: Brenda Grobler Loosely based on Annie, Bahari is an excellent stashbuster. Bahari is a Swahili word that means 'by the sea', and this is actually why Carle asked Brenda to design a similar one. Annie is a firm favourite in her wardrobe, but as she spends a lot of time at her home in Kommetjie, she needed an extra one for long walks on the beach.Yarn: Eco-Cotton Designer: Anneke Wiese This pattern originally appeared in Issue 24 of Creative Hobbies. This lovely design from Anneke is so versatile. Add it to a round cushion, and depending on how deep you make your cushion cover, this could double up as a normal cushion or even a floor cushion! Or just make the mandala and use it on its own.

The yoke is the same for both garments, and are thereafter customised to become either a cute little dress, or a playful pullover. If Eco-Bamboo is used, it will result in slightly smaller garment and Eco-Cotton will create a slightly bigger garment. Happy crocheting!Yarn: Eco-Cotton Designer: Chriselle Wolfaardt Choyamba means “first” in Chichewa, the official language of Malawi, the Warm Heart of Africa. Chriselle started her teaching career in Malawi and is currently teaching in China. This is her first written crochet pattern. The name of this scarf is a perfect celebration of her achievements.
