Inside issue 96 our designers have delighted us with new ways to use texture and lace, by bringing a modern twist to classic styles. Sarah Hatton's funnel neck top shows a hint of traditional Gansey style, while Lisa Clements' zipped cardigan for men features an eye-catching colourwork yoke. A cleverly constructed shawl by Pat Menchini drapes elegantly around shoulders and a sophisticated pair of socks by Sarah Hatton perfectly decorates feet with delicate cables and twists. If you're looking for something a little more fun to knit, take a look at Mary Henderson's retro Fair Isle tank top full of bright and wonderful colours. We also have a stunning Fair Isle cardigan for boys and girls that uses stranded colourwork to create a warm and cosy fabric.
Our latest masterclass, from expert Jen Arnall-Culliford, shows you how to add neat pleats and tucks to your knits. Plus, learn all about life on the farm with Susan Crawford and don't miss our review of the best books and yarns for spring and summer.
