Say hello to Simply Crochet magazine – fab giveaway & free pattern for you!

Hooray, we're so excited about the launch of a brand new crochet magazine! Simply Crochet is coming very soon, created by our friends behind Simply Knitting, The Knitter and Mollie Makes

To celebrate, we're going crochet-crazy, with a free Christmas pattern for you plus a very special giveaway - we've got a year's subscription to Simply Crochet magazine for one lucky winner!

First up, a free pattern! We love these Crochet Bells by Cara Medus - they bring a touch of retro chic to the Christmas tree, and you could even crochet them in metallic yarn for a sparkling effect.

You can download the project for free on The Making Spot right now! Be sure to share your photos and comments once you're done, we'd love to see how you get on.

And now for our big giveaway! One lucky crochet fan will win a subscription to Simply Crochet, starting from the very first issue. Simply fill in our quick competition form to enter! The competition is open to crafters worldwide, and ends on 10th December 2012.

Good luck everyone!
