There’s nothing quite like neckwear with personality! We love the sweet Cat Scarf from Miss Snowberry (£47), the exotic-looking Cockatoo scarf (£66) from knit genius Nina Führer, and the perfectly pink Lobster Scarf by Telfer Designs (all three on Etsy). Then there’s the structural wonder that is Louise Walker’s Wolf Headress scarf – the pattern is in her book, FauxTaxidermyKnits (£11.99) on Amazon.co.uk. Each one is a fab knit conversation.
Brighten up that tired, lumpy sofa with the Masley Cushion Cover Knitting Kit from the Stitch & Story gang (£39). Aimed squarely at beginners, it’s knitted in Stitch & Story’s 100% Chunky Wool yarn which is super snuggly and soft, and knits up so fast it’ll have you casting off and plumping up in no time. Not the right colour for your decor? No problem. This kit also comes in stormy grey and yellow, teal and ivory, and orange and white. Discover more about their homewares at stitchandstory.com.
