Keep your hands busy with some cheerful crochet.

Most yarn-obsessed folks understand the heavy burden of a mountainous stash. It’s the loveliest, softest guilt trip in the world. What in the world are you meant to do with all that unused fibre in varying lengths and hues?

If you're wrestling with these questions, let us point you in the direction of the perfect stash-buster: the
Gigi Jumper, a crochet pattern designed to work with whatever wackadoo colours you have in your hoard. The granny square pattern comes from the noggin of Holly Woodward, a 20-something from Doncaster, UK, who specialises in size-inclusive crochet and knitwear designs.

Though the Gigi Jumper is intended for intermediate crocheters, Holly reckons advanced beginners can give it a go, too. So pop the kettle on, get hooking and revel in the sweet, sweet relief of tackling that yarn pile.
