Inside this issue

’Tis the season for making the most of your handmade woolly wardrobe, from big cosy sweaters to colourful hats and mittens. And with everyone mindful of rising energy costs and the importance of sustainable fashion, why not have a rummage around in your stash pile and try out our lovely patterns this issue?

For cosy garments I love Rhian Drinkwater’s timeless V-Neck Sweater and Lucy George’s fabulous Earthy Jacket. I’ll also be hooking Helda Panagary’s stunning Recovery Shawl as it feels like wearing a comforting hug, and I love the beautiful simplicity of Anna Nikipirowicz’s Solveig Tunisian Shawl.

Everyone will appreciate handmade gifts this year and it is never too early to start making. Emma Varnam’s incredible Orchid flower is delightful and Heather C Gibbs’ textured tweedy scarf can be customised in any colourway to suit. Plus there’s some fabulous alphabet bunting from the new book by the wonderful Tom Daley, and to start the party early, why not hook up the sweetest Advent Steam Train, complete with 24 present sacks, delivering the happiest countdown to Christmas we’ve seen.
