Never shared a make before? Fear not, here’s a guide on how to create a project.

Now that all your gift knitting is done, it's time to start a project just for you. We've found a few treats that you might not be able to resist now that the hustle and bustle is over.

Colourwork is great fun, and it's worth taking some quiet time to devote to Fair Isle, mosaic and stranded knitting techniques. Colour work needs quiet time, and you can't rush it, so set yourself up with your chosen shades and lots of space, and make sure you have a good light to follow a chart.

Make time for colourwork

Sometimes all we knitters need is a simple scarf, or acres of stocking stitch to make us happy. Whether you love super chunky garter stitch or gentle rows of a pattern repeat, there's a soothing pattern waiting to help you recover from the festive season!
