Hurrah – it finally looks a bit like summer! So we’re celebrating with a bounty of knits for all your outdoor possibilities.

Wow at garden parties with our incredibly pretty (and simple) vintage top, browse those summer fêtes with our Aztec bag, and layer up with our bold accessories for the festival season. Add to this our perfectly packable texturised tee, wonderfully cool-blue gilet and summer-striped linen jumper and you’ll be holiday ready in no time.

Swamped with summer birthdays? You’ll have already spotted our elephants kit (we adore them!), but don’t miss our sweet cat and dog toys and a dapper-looking dinosaur this issue, too. Happy knitting!
