This month we’ve pulled together a collection of designs in bright, bold tones not just to celebrate Christmas but to add a bit of extra brightness to the dark days and long nights of this time of year. There’s plenty of inspiration for your festive wish list, and even some quick knits you could get knitted and cast off in time to be last minute gifts. Vivid designs include Pat Menchini’s beautiful Fiesole cabled sweater, Bronagh Miskelly’s fitted Virginia cardigan and Jacinta Bowie’s Ramona, knitted in yarn from Wool Couture – an exciting new venture you can read more about on page 14. We’re also excited to be featuring a design by Scandi knitting superstars Arne & Carlos: Carise, part of yarn brand Rowan’s collection celebrating its ruby anniversary. And there are some real treats for you fans of indie-dyed yarns: Bronagh Miskelly’s Crosshatch Socks in a gorgeously saturated red from Travelknitter, stunning Crème Rouge wrap by popular shawl designer Brian Smith in colours from Easyknits and pretty Rosebay hat by Kettle Yarn Co’s Linda Lencovic. So with all that plus all our regular features, you’ll find plenty of reasons to spend the season with yarn and needles in hand in the December issue of Knitting, out now!
