Moorit is an independent crochet magazine based in Scotland. 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.
Being in a country of dramatic landscapes and long dark winter nights, their location encourages the embrace of wool. Scotland also serves as a wonderful backdrop and they draw design inspiration from the beautiful textures and colours of the nature and built environment surrounding them.
This debut issue of Moorit, is a celebration of 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 colorwork, 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.
Both the experienced and novice crocheter will find endless inspiration within the pages of this beautiful publication.
