How d’you like them apples? Here at Mollie Makes we like our apples crisp and juicy with no bruises thank you very much so we are just love love loving the chance to keep our fruit safe and sound by making apple cosies for our lunch boxes.

Who would have thought a few years ago we would have seen granny squares on the catwalk but crochet has really hit the fashion headlines, thanks to collections from the likes of uber trendsville Henry Holland. We for one are totally thrilled crochet is back in vogue and as it looks set to be around for a while we thoroughly recommend getting hooked.

What’s that you say? Don’t know where to start? Phew!
