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.
With designs by... Alyson Chu, Anne-Michelle Phelan, Aoibhe Ni, Clarisabeth Lopez Rodriguez, Eline Alcocer, Fay Dashper-Hughes, Jessie Van In, Lili Buce-Chelmko, Linda Skuja, Rosina Northcott, and Stephanie Erin.
Using yarn from... Baa Ram Ewe, Biches et Buches, Blacker Yarns, Eden Cottage Yarns, Garthenor, Jamieson’s of Shetland, La Bien Aimee, Martin’s Lab, Tukuwool and The Neighborhood Fiber Co.
And other contributions from... Chrissie Asbridge and Natalie Warner.
The first issue of Focussing on wearable, modern crochet garments and accessories made in natural fibres, Moorit is a craft magazine with true indie spirit.
