Hi there!

Simply Knitting - - Cast On -

Who’s get­ting ex­cited about Christ­mas? We are – our nee­dles are laden with presents in the mak­ing! Now is a good time to get stuck into big­ger projects so you can get them fin­ished; all those fun, smaller projects can be kept for a bit nearer the time, when ev­ery hour counts!

We’ve got loads of great knits for Christ­mas in this is­sue, es­pe­cially if you’re a fan of fes­tive jumpers. Cast on our bob­ble-and-frill Fair Isle cover jumper, or knit up a frosty-look­ing bear sweater for your lit­tle cubs.

This is­sue comes with an ex­tra spe­cial gift too – our Cosy Home Christ­mas pat­tern book is packed with beau­ti­ful gifts for you to make and give. Need a lit­tle more in­spi­ra­tion? Then turn to our Treat Your­self fea­ture on page 16 where you’ll find more great fes­tive pat­terns to try and some of the lat­est sea­sonal yarns to cast on with. We love the gin­ger­bread house and sweet tree dec­o­ra­tions! They’re per­fect for en­cour­ag­ing the fam­ily to deck the halls this Christ­mas. Be­fore you go, don’t miss this one-time treat.

Knit Your Own Na­tiv­ity (it’s a kit and a pat­tern book) makes a show-stop­ping knit for all the fam­ily – the kids will re­ally love it. Turn to page 16 to find out more! Un­til next time…

Alan Dart’s Tree Trim­mers are ut­terly adorable on page 47.

Snug­gle up with a warm roll neck on page 27.

Cute bear hugs are the best kind, on page 18.
