    BUMPER MR MEN KIT & 3 PATTERNS

    £6.99

    As we head into the summer season, we’re embracing happy colours, fun prints and all things bright and beautiful! I’m seeing rainbows everywhere this year, so I had to ask my designers for their woolly takes on the trend. Whether you choose to knit our stripy socks or Sophie McKane’s fabulous umbrella pullover – whatever the weather – you can still shine bright!

    I know that some folk tend to knit a little less in the warmer months, but I just switch to smaller projects – and there’s no shortage of those in this issue. Georgie the Giraffe uses just one ball of yarn, and the Seashore Cushion is knitted in lovely summery cotton. Our cover garment – Kristen Singer’s stylish cotton top – is the perfect layering piece for sunny days, and can be knitted in no time. If you’re looking to inject some sunshine into your knits, check out some of out favourite patterns this month and check out our favourite new yarns.

     Not sure what to cast on first? Grab a cuppa and a slice of cake, and have a little read before you decide. Lots of folk I’ve spoken to recently have said that they’re a bit nervous to play with colour, so this issue I’m determined to help you out. If you fancy getting adventurous with colour, you can read my top tips. For those who want to shake up their knitting even more by changing the yarn in a pattern, we’ve got an easy guide to yarn substitution. Here’s to your brighter summer ever!

    Handy Lockable Stitch Markers & Rowan Superfine Collection Supplement

    £6.99

    This month as the weather starts to hint more heavily towards summer, we’re starting to switch to lighter yarn and lacier patterns. This issue’s cover star, the Lattice Crust top is a fantastic layering piece which will be a delight to knit. I’m not kidding myself though – we still live in the UK and I for one wear my jumper all year round, so you’ll find a couple of cosier knits in here too including the Botanics Pullover, which is a fantastic unisex knit. If you’re thinking of casting on a new garment, don’t miss Dana’s tips for knitting fantastic garments. She’s inspired me to crack on with some WIPs.

    If you fancy a quick knit, there’s plenty to choose from in this issue. I can’t resist our Shaun the Sheep jumper that you can knit in no time with chunky yarn. For a portable project, why not try the Giverny hat or Aki Scarf? They can both be made from under 100g of yarn. For the toy lovers out there, we’ve got a little treat from Sachiyo Ishii – two adorable little sheep to knit. They’re even wearing their own little cabled jumpers.

    There are some fantastic features in this issue too, so if you’re not quite sure what to cast on first, why not grab a cuppa and settle in for a good read before you decide? I love my KnitPro needles, so it was fantastic to hear from the team this month about all the good work it does. If you want to give KnitPro needles a try, check out our subscription offer or if you don’t fancy taking out a subscription, pop along to a participating yarn shop to claim your free needles!

    RSPB Stitch Markers & Book of Knitted British Birds Supplement

    Regular Price: £6.99

    Special Price £3.99

    This month we’re celebrating the unique properties of British wool with our eighth annual Best of British issue! Britain has long held a reputation for producing some of the best wool in the world, and our favourite yarn companies are proving that our reputation is still well-deserved. As you flip through this issue, look out for the ‘Meet your yarn’ boxes on each pattern, which tell you a little bit of the story of each yarn. I love using British wool not only because it’s beautiful to work with, but also because it reduces my carbon footprint because the yarn hasn’t had to travel far from the sheep to my needles. I also love supporting businesses that are run by people I know and trust, such as West Yorkshire Spinners – you can read all about our day out at the factory inside.

    Inside this issue you’ll find projects to suit all budgets and skill levels, which each showcase a stunning locally-made yarn. If you’re an adventurous knitter, you’ll love the Helena Rose stole, which is knitted from a stunning hand-dyed yarn. As a history buff, I love the inspiration behind the Tylwyth Jumper and the finished garment is just perfect. For an affordable little knit, why not try the Orlando baby cardigan? It’s knitted in great-value machine-washable yarn from Home Farm Wensleydales.

    The world of British wool is really vibrant right now, so you’ll find plenty to read in this issue. Zoë Potrac is busting some myths around sheep-shearing and we caught up with designer Ella Doran to find out her woolly story. Finally, if your stash needs a little boost, don’t miss your chance to enter our biggest-ever giveaway.

    Knit your own Gromit kit & Best of Knit Now Supplement

    Regular Price: £7.99

    Special Price £3.99

    This month we’ve got a special 100th edition of Knit Now! I can’t believe we’ve made it to issue 100 – it seems like only yesterday that I was calling my mum to tell her I’d got my dream job and starting work on issue 1! Our cover garment is from one of my favourite people in the whole world, Anna Elliott. She’s been with us since the beginning and if you’re feeling nostalgic, you’ll find her first pattern for us in this issue’s supplement. We’re also welcoming some new names, including Julie Dubreux. I think she’s one of the most inspiring designers working at the moment and I’m so excited to welcome her to the Knit Now family.

    Another knitter we’re excited to include in this issue if Gromit! Fans of the Wallace & Gromit films will know that this clever canine is a keen knitter, so we couldn’t think of a more perfect character to create a knitting pattern for. I loved giving him some needles and a project to work on – my girlfriend made the needles for me by cutting down an inexpensive bamboo pair.

    If you don’t fancy casting on just yet, why not grab a cup of tea and a slice of birthday cake and settle in for a good read? We interview knitting royalty Debbie Bliss in issue 1, so I though it would be fun to chat to her again. We’ve also spoken to an up-and-coming designer who I think is going to be huge – Frenchie from Aroha Knits. Finally, if you can’t wait for the next 100 issues, don’t miss out incredible subscription offer – our birthday present to you is a set of needles worth £96 when you subscribe!

    Special Price £2.99

    This month we’ve got an incredible collection of patterns which I’m sure you’ll love to knit. From cosy garments to quick makes for babies, there’s something here for all the family. I love Audrey Allum’s cable-edged cardigan, especially the cute little pockets, but in this weather, I think what I really need is Quail Studio’s Georgia jumper – it just looks so cosy!

    If you’re looking for a quick knit, you can start with this issue’s exclusive gift. It’s one of our biggest kits ever, with enough yarn to knit a baby cardi, a pair of mitts or a cuddly koala toy designed exclusively by Amanda Berry. For other fab quick knits, why not try Thien-Kieu Lam’s luxurious cowl or Kim Dickinson’s fun Easter bag for kids.

    Not sure what to cast on first? Grab a cuppa and a slice of cake and settle in for a good read. Don’t miss our exclusive interview with Christine Perry, the designer and blogger otherwise known as Winwick Mum. She’s revealing her gorgeous new colourways for West Yorkshire Spinners’s Signature 4-ply Sock yarn. I can’t wait to get my hands on a ball and cast on a pair of socks. We also spoke to Beth of Beehive Yarns – I love her fun sense of colour.

    FREE BUNNY KIT + BABY PATTERN

    Regular Price: £6.99

    Special Price £2.99

    This month we’re taking our first tentative steps into spring, with brighter colours and a focus on knits that are perfect for layering – so whatever the weather, you’ll find something in these pages to suit. Donna Jones’s Moongazers Capelet (page 42) is perfect for throwing on over an outfit to add an extra layer of warmth. Of course, there’s nothing quite like a cute little bunny to welcome in spring – and you’ll find the pattern to knit this issue’s free kit on page 52. If you’re not really a toy person, we’ve got a couple of other great options to use your free yarn too. I love the look of Jenny’s little mitts (page 50).

    The eagle-eyed among you might spot that we’ve gone a bit animal-mad this issue. There are lots of cute animal-themed things in the shops right now, so I thought it would be fun to reflect that in our knits! I’ve got a little cat at home, but I really love dogs too, and I’m really tempted by Kari-Helene Rane’s super-cute cowl (page 32).

    If your needles are full right now, you don’t have to cast anything on straight away. We’ve got plenty for you to read in this issue as well. Our roving reporter Anna Elliott has been investigating machine knitting (page 40), I interviewed Skein Queen (page 22) and of course we’ve got all the latest news and reviews throughout this issue. So grab a cuppa and settle in for a good read!
