This month we’re embracing the heart of winter with 22 festive knits. Christmas is the perfect opportunity to break out the comfiest and most glamorous knitwear you can get your needles on. This month Bronagh Miskelly presents us with her ombré Blaze jumper and One Ball Challenge Bauble Socks; Jo Allport brings her gloriously sexy Ada jumper, a surprisingly simple jumper whose trick is all in the sewing up; keep warm on the harsh winter’s nights with Rico’s glitzy mermaid tails, perfect for a relaxing night in – sized so you can enjoy it at 6 months or 60 years! We also explore the art of brioche knitting, with a detailed masterclass on this delicious stitch (although we don’t suggest sampling the end products, the yarn might get stuck in your teeth), and three patterns to go with it. Elsewhere we get ready for Christmas with a great shopping guide for those last-minute stocking fillers for those you know who love to craft. Every reader will also get a free 2018 year planner with inspiring lists to make to keep up with your knitting resolutions. So quick, you’ve still got time to whip up some perfect Christmas gifts with this month’s issue of Knitting.
