    3-in-1 knitting calculator PLUS Build Your Basics book

    £6.99

    This month we’re inviting you to switch off and cast on with us. Switch off from all the distractions of the world and treat yourself to some luxurious and relaxing knits. This issue we’re focussing on simple, classic designs that are soothing to knit and comfortable as well as flattering to wear. Our cover jumper by Clare Devine is a perfect example – the modern shape and clever shaping will keep you interested while you knit, without it being too complicated. As with all of our original designs, including the Snug Shrug and Sycamore Pullover, we’ve included instructions for a wide range of sizes.

    This issue we’re also delighted to launch the first instalment of our brand-new knit-along pattern – a super-cosy blanket designed by Louise Tilbrook. In keeping with this issue’s theme, we’re taking this KAL as an opportunity to reflect as we knit, so I hope you’ll enjoy considering Louise’s journaling prompt as you stitch your first square. If you’re looking for a quicker project, I love the look of the Valencia shawl, which will be a joy to knit in this luxurious yarn.

    Not ready to cast on just yet? How about grabbing yourself a cup of tea and having a read first? If you’re looking for some expert tips for getting a great fit in your garments, don’t miss our feature by Karie Westermann. We’re also really excited to announce the winners of our Knitter of the Year competition – did your favourites win?

    The Build Your Basics book is your exclusive gift with this issue. We’ve worked with our talented designer and technical editor Michelle Hazell to create this essential reference book, which we hope you’ll use for years to come. This book gives you the ultimate freedom to create stunning classic garments in a huge range of sizes, in 4-ply, DK or aran-weight yarn.

    Penny the Penguin kit PLUS exclusive novelty needle toppers

    £6.99

    Out of stock

    This issue we’re really indulging our love of cosy yarn and squishy textures to keep us warm through these chilly months. To me, nothing says winter quite like a cable pullover, so we’ve got a couple for you to choose from in this issue. For bold statement cables, our cover jumper by Adrienne Larsen offers experienced knitters an enjoyable cable challenge. If you’re looking for something a bit more understated, I love Helen Metcalfe’s use of reverse stocking stitch and delicate yoke cables in her Tragumna pullover.

    For those of you who are looking for a quick knit, you don’t have to go far! With this issue, one of your exclusive gifts is a kit to knit your own adorable Penny the Penguin. Toy lovers will be spoilt for choice – we also have an official Spot the Dog pattern, which is an exclusive design by Sachiyo Ishii. If you’re looking for instant gratification, I took on the challenge of arm knitting and you can read all about my thoughts on this craze on page 56 – I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it!

    Before you pick up your needles, why not grab a cup of tea and a slice of cake and have a read of some of our fascinating features? We’ve got an exclusive scoop from Rowan about its brand-new 100% British yarn Moordale, which I’m really excited about. You can also meet Homespun Wonders and find out who’s been shortlisted in our Stylecraft design competition. I really hope you enjoy this issue.

    V&A 2019 vintage knitting calendar PLUS Rowan pattern book

    Regular Price: £6.99

    Special Price £3.99

    This issue we’re setting you up for a wonderfully woolly year ahead, with an exclusive pattern book from Rowan as well as a Vintage Knitting calendar from the V&A (Victoria and Albert Museum). I was so thrilled to work with the world-famous V&A, exploring the museum’s incredible archives for our calendar. The archive of fashion photography was the obvious choice for the calendar, especially as the V&A is synonymous with fashion. The calendar features photography by John French, who became one of London’s top fashion photographers in the 1950s and 60s.

    Inside your magazine, you’ll find even more inspiration for the year ahead. For this issue’s pattern collection, we’ve worked with Kari-Helene Rane, one of the winners of the Knitter of the Year Awards 2017. She prompted our designers to take their inspiration from the knitting traditions of our islands – from the Ganseys from the channel islands, to Fair Isle and Shetland lace from the North. I love the way that each designer has put their own spin on these traditional techniques. We’re even celebrating island life with our RSPB puffin pattern!

    If you’re not ready to get out your needles just yet, why not pour yourself a cuppa and settle in for a good read? We’ve got three fascinating interviews as well as all the usual news, reviews and top tips. This issue’s Ask the Experts page is a sock special, so why not cast off those winter blues and cast on a cosy pair of socks!

    FREE PATTERN COUNTER + CLASSIC KNITS BOOK

    Regular Price: £6.99

    Special Price £2.99

    This month, we’re bringing you a brilliantly British issue of Knit Now!

    I know I’m not supposed to have favourites, but I don’t think it’s any secret amongst my friends that I look forward to our annual Best of British special issue every year. In this issue each year, we celebrate the best British yarns and designers. This is a great opportunity for me to explore new yarns as well as revisiting some old favourites. Throughout this issue, look out for the little “Meet your yarn” boxes, which will tell you a little bit about each yarn we’ve chosen.

    Of course, you don’t have to be born here to be British – Britain’s favourite bear, Paddington, was an immigrant from Deepest Darkest Peru after all, and he’s one of our most-loved characters. I hope you’ll enjoy knitting the Paddington jumper pattern that comes in this issue’s free pattern supplement (UK print issues only – not available in digital edition). Similarly, I don’t think yarn has to be grown here to be considered British – the beautiful Yarn Stories Fine Merino DK which Katya Frankel used for her Cough Drops Cowl uses imported Merino wool, but the yarn is spun in Yorkshire, and I like to think that’s where it gets its character!

    As ever, this issue is packed full of patterns for all skill levels. If you fancy knitting a garment, there’s plenty to choose from, including a beginner-friendly mohair top and a gorgeous cabled pullover. For those of you looking for a quick knit, there are some fab knits for your little ones, including a baby jumper from West Yorkshire Spinners. If you’re excited about the imminent royal wedding, you can even cast on a little royal guard on horseback!

    This issue is extra-special for me, because I’ve been able to work with one of my favourite woolly people, Louise Scollay of Knit British. Louise’s work to promote British wool is absolutely unparalleled and I was over the moon when she agreed to help me with this issue. Louise helped me choose which patterns and yarn to include, and she’s written a fab article for us (page 24) all about why you should choose local wool. I really hope you enjoy reading this issue as much as I’ve enjoyed working on it.

    Happy knitting,

    Kate
    Editor

    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!
