The Knitting Collection

OK, I am a little late, but I think that this new knitting bookazine would make a fabulous belated Christmas present. I am biased as I edited it - yes, I have had a clandestine affair with knitting again after so long with my current first mistress, crochet. The Knitting Collection has so many gorgeous patterns (47!) by fabulous designers. See what you think of this taster.
 This hairband pattern is one of mine, on my stunning cousin Jess, isn't she beautiful? The pattern is so simple and easily customised.
 The collection contains home products as well as fashion, and kidswear too. These stylish and very simple cup cosies are by Sarah Coad - her first published knitting pattern. She is usually more partial to crochet!

 And every collection needs an adorable teddy - this one is called Terence! He is so characterful, designed by the lovely Nicky Sutton
