    DOUGAL KNIT KIT

    £6.99

    Welcome to the high-summer issue of Knit Now. We’re looking a little way south and a long way back this month. Ancient Rome, Greece, Egypt and beyond provide oodles of inspiration for warm-weather palettes and textures, like the hieroglyph-style ibis cowl that’s also a great opportunity to flex your stranded colour work muscles!
     
    I love the Nefertum Shawl, which is such an elegant piece for summer evening. The Pharaoh Top combines strong colour and striking pattern to stylish effect – and the short sleeve make it summer friendly. And that’s not all we have in lovely lightweight knits. The Brighton Beach Top works well with jeans, but – if the weather holds up – also makes a chic cover-up b the sea. The Regain and Berry Vine cardigans are simply perfect for throwing round your shoulders on summer nights.
     
    We haven’t forgotten about the little ones either – I think you’ll agree that our unisex Ladybird Cardigan is beyond adorable, and don’t the Toni & Tina Triceratops toys in delicious ice-cream shades look good enough to eat?
     
    Don’t worry if you’re not ready to cast on yet, there’s plenty to read first. We’re charting to Julie Dubreux from Julie Knits in Paris and Jessica James from Ginger Twist Studio. Julie’s mantra is ‘a splash of colour a day keeps the doctor away’ and I’m totally on board – check out this issue’s pattern picks for some colourful inspiration.
     
    Happy knitting,

    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

    Regular Price: £6.99

    Special Price £2.99

    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.

    Knit Now issue 100

    Knit your own Gromit kit & Best of Knit Now Supplement

    Regular Price: £7.99

    Special Price £2.99

    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!
