This month it’s all about bright, sunny yellow. We bring you 23 new season knits including short-sleeved summer tops like Pat Menchini’s sparkly Fiesta, Jo Allport’s trendy cropped asymmetrical Sunshine, and cardigans and wraps perfect for layering. You can read about Sarah Paul’s North Yorkshire business Bigwigs Angora, where the rabbits live in a purpose-built-free-range pen and doze happily on Sarah’s knees as she clips them one by one. Plus find out how knitting helped author CL Taylor overcome her digital addiction. Finally, if you’re a shawl knitter, you’ll love Gwen Wagner-Adair’s new series of three workshops as well as our free supplement, which features six extra shawl patterns plus tips on techniques, styling and designing your own shawls. With a great range of patterns and inspiration plus all our regular features, you’ll find plenty to keep you busy in the May issue of Knitting, out now!
