Editor note:My favourite project this issue though is Verity Castledine’s versatile Isla design, which can be worked in a variety of ways to suit your lifestyle. I’m a huge fan of hand-dyed yarns and have a large stash which I can’t wait to raid to make my own version of this pretty pattern. I don’t know whether to start with a simple top or a long-sleeved cardigan… Either way the lace design should work up quickly, so I may just make all three styles for myself!
