Editor note:My favourite project this issue though is Verity Castledineâ€™s versatile Isla design, which can be worked in a variety of ways to suit your lifestyle. Iâ€™m a huge fan of hand-dyed yarns and have a large stash which I canâ€™t wait to raid to make my own version of this pretty pattern. I donâ€™t know whether to start with a simple top or a long-sleeved cardiganâ€¦ Either way the lace design should work up quickly, so I may just make all three styles for myself!
