Our latest design collection includes must-knit cardigans, sweaters and accessories for all the family. Emma Vining’s cosy sweater cleverly plays with cables and darning techniques to create a fresh, leaf-like effect, while Amanda Jones’s warm pink jumper has luscious lace.

Mary has also created a leafy shawl for us in Shetland wool. And subtle colour is the theme of Pat Menchini’s poloneck sweater; its classic style will appeal to both men and women.

Elsewhere, we have stunning textures in the form of a belted cable jacket, an elegant girl’s cardigan by Sarah Hatton, neat socks by Clare Devine, and much more. Our supplement this month is the first in our series of 'Knitting around the world', with a pattern for a traditional Swedish wrap shawl.
We also chat with Ravelry favourite Hannah Fettig, and bring you a round-up of the best knitting holidays for 2015. It will have you dreaming of lazy days in the sun!
