The very first issue of Moorit is a celebration of the Moorit team's 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 colourwork, 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.

It was high time for a modern crochet magazine to enter the market! We love Alyson Chu's (the head, hands and heart of Moorit) dedication to and love for crochet, and deeply admire how she integrated accessibility into her work from the beginning. Time to pick up the hook for us!
