Stylecraft has some lovely new yarns and shades plus gorgeous patterns by Annelies Baes. First up, enjoy five new hues in the Life DK line, from Caramel and French Blue to Pillar Box Red – which Annelies used in her irresistibly bright Mexican Serapi bolster and blanket set. Get the cosy country cottage vibe with Weekender Super Chunky’s new shades – Greenstone, Old Rose and Silver – and hook Annelies’ delicious squishy cushion and tasselled blanket. Plus, say hello to new Batik Elements, a soft acrylic wool blend in a beautiful palette of eight faded, variegated shades. They’re brilliant on their own or with the solid Batik shades, as in Annelies’ pretty blanket with slanted stripes and lacy motifs.
Life DK, £3.60 per 100g; Weekender Super Chunky, £3.90 per 100g; Batik Elements, £2.50 per 50g. For stockists and patterns visit www.stylecraft-yarns.co.uk
