It’s the time of year we knitters secretly love! Yes, we know we have to say goodbye to sunny days and holidays, but that means it’s time to dig out all our favourite, cosy jumpers and cardis – and, of course, knit a few more winter woollies to add to our collection!
This issue we’re bursting at the seams with fabulous seasonal knits to inspire you, from stylish autumn cover-ups you can throw on as the weather gets cooler, to fun Halloween projects the kids will love. Look out for our exclusive Alan Dart design too – though we think his spooky cat is just too sweet to have you shaking in your boots!
Talking of autumn makes, your free 10mm bamboo needles and Chunky Knits for Autumn pattern book this month mean you can cast on today and knit yourself a stylish textured cowl, a two-tone bag or diamond cushion in no time. They will make great weekend projects for when the weather turns.
Finally, don’t miss our Ultimate Knit Kit feature – these are all the knitting tools we just can’t live without. Just don’t blame us if it sparks the desire for a little shopping spree...!
Simply Knitting is also available as a digital edition, for Apple phones and tablets, Android phones and tablets, the Barnes & Noble Nook, and to read through Zinio as PDFs. All the links are here.
