RECORD BREAKER Ed­ward Han­naford of Sit­ting­bourne has bro­ken the world record for cre­at­ing the long­est piece of con­tin­u­ous knit­ting with a colour­ful rope mea­sur­ing al­most 20

miles long!

KNIT­TERS SAY ‘NO’ TO FRACK­ING A group of knit­ting mam­mas and nan­nas from Alice Springs,

Aus­tralia have staged a two-hour ‘knit-in’ in to protest

about hy­draulic frack­ing in Aus­tralia’s North­ern Ter­ri­to­ries. Find out more about their ‘nan­nafesto’ at Knit­ting-nan­

The first pho­tos of Princess Char­lotte in her oh-so-sweet knit­ted bon­net didn’t just melt hearts around the world – they re­vived a trend for old-fash­ioned hand­knit bon­nets! Since then the sweet caps have been a must-add to Rav­elry queues for knit­ters every­where. This pretty bon­net from Sublime is sim­ple enough to tempt new­bies to try lace knit­ting for the first time – and it only takes one ball of Sublime Cash­mere Merino Silk DK! It’s part of The Sev­en­teenth Lit­tle Sublime Hand Knit Book of 15 pat­terns, avail­able for about £8 from most yarn shops.
