New Year, New Patterns


The beginning of a new year is always an exciting time and there’s nothing better than a fresh new project. We’re introducing 6 new patterns created by 5 talented crafters to help you kick start the year. So, grab your hooks and needles and come along to see what we’ve crafted for you.


Created by Germany-based Brazilian artist Ana Clara Bordou, this beautiful embroidery pattern combines four different embroidery stitches worked in Anchor Stranded Cotton. Hang this super fun hoop on the wall or display it on a counter in your home where you will see it frequently. It is the perfect, uplifting message to start the year!

British duo Alisha and Roisin from Sew Botanical have created two new plant-inspired patterns for Anchor Crafts. Hand embroidered works inspired by nature and interior design have made it into the embroidery world, and we couldn't be more excited to have Sew Botanical in our corner!

Easy to make, these two embroidery patterns are worked in Anchor Stranded Cotton and make for a stunning hanging wall decoration.

How pretty is this purse? Created by Spanish embroiderer Aurora-Arorua, this beautiful floral pattern works beautifully in different ways and makes any plain shirt or purse look special. It combines a handful of different embroidery stitches worked in Anchor Stranded Cotton and it is best suited for the intermediate embroiderer.



For all crocheters out there, we have two fun projects to kick start the new year.

The round Mandala cushion crocheted in pastel Anchor Creativa yarn was designed by Spanish artist Creativa Atelier and it is a favourite already! The colour combo and fun pom poms give it a light feel and boho look. The pattern is suited for all crocheters featuring easy to follow instructions.

Is there a better time to crochet your own blankets than now? This baby blanket was designed by Ana from One Skein of Love and it is worked with Anchor Baby Pure Cotton in shades of blue, pink and white. Baby blankets make for the best gifts and you can easily switch the colours to give it that special touch.


Happy crafting!
