Moorit is an independent crochet magazine based in Scotland and run by Alyson Chu. Launched in 2021, it was imagined as an antidote to the dearth of print publications made especially for crocheters. Focussing on wearable, modern garments and accessories made in natural fibres, Moorit is a high-end craft magazine with true indie spirit.
In this issue we're taking you on an interstellar mission to discover 10 celestial crochet designs for autumn and winter in our 'Cosmic' issue. Our designers went starry-eyed as they looked upwards for inspiration. The designs explore a variety of astronomical phenomena from binary star systems and gaseous nebulae to the invisible movements of heavenly bodies. You'll find elegant textures and colours that reflect the awesome and sublime beauty of the cosmos.
In this issue, Fay Dashper-Hughes runs an experiment, exploring how using yarn unders can radically change the look and feel of crocheted fabric compared to the traditional yarn overs.
