This month it’s all about relaxation. We bring you 24 calming knits to make you feel good. The designs range from Brian Smith’s Sorata a super-soft intriguing shawl to Jo Allport’s Mayble with pretty lace sleeves. If it’s accessories you’re after, then knit a chunky throw or cosy Sleep and Relax Hot Water Bottle Covers. Kick back and read all about how Renée Callahan came up with the idea for her book The Zen Variations – and what she is doing now – in our feature Eastern Promise. With a great range of patterns and inspiration plus all our regular features, you’ll find plenty to help induce a meditative state in the April issue of Knitting, out now!
