The days are getting longer, the sky is getting bluer and we’re really in the mood for all those springtime knits!
For me a spring knit is about cooler, lighter yarns and calmer, softer colours, but that doesn’t mean it’s the same for everyone. I have friends and family who burst out in bright colours at the mere mention of spring! To please both sides of the spectrum we’ve included knits in pretty muted tones and bolder brights this issue. Our cover poncho, with its strong geometric pattern, is one of the easiest knits to wear. It has a soft feel and a heavy drape, making it feel like you’re wearing a comfort blanket!
Light jumpers in sunshine stripes await your little darlings, alongside a cute dog pullover complete with fluffy muzzle, and the most amazing rocking horse design by Monica Fuertes. Our sheep armchair tidy and bunny bag pay homage to spring’s favourite animals, and don’t forget our Simply Royal Baby Knits booklet filled with gorgeous patterns from our friends at Sirdar, and our Quick Knits selection that's perfect for weekend cast ons…
Have a stitch-packed spring everyone!
