This issue we’re celebrating summer colour! From the spicy shade of our ribbed cardi by Sarah Hatton to the cool blue of Pat Menchini’s empire-line top, there’s something summery for you to fall in love with this issue.

Beach fans will love our pastel bag trim, matching flip-flops and sunglasses case, and our plum-toned sleeveless top with simple lace panel is ideal for both garden parties and gardening!

If your favourite little person is your champion, knit them Louise Crowther’s fantasy superhero teddy, complete with incognito mask and flowing red cape, or Amanda Berry’s trio of squishy farm animals.

Finish your month with our guide to cast ons and discover that the way you start can significantly improve the way you finish.
