I promised that I’d put the December issue onto our website early, for everyone who would like some inspiration for Christmas sweaters, so here it is. Our front cover shows a family group with four new ideas for intarsia knitting or Swiss darning and there are lots more inside. We’ve family patterns written in 11 sizes for standard, mid gauge and chunky models, so you can knit the festive designs on any machine. Our regular features include Clubline, Dear Anne and Style File. Bill King shows us all sorts of interpretations from one simple punchcard and UK designer Alison Dupernex shares her design for an easy multi-size jacket using oddments of 2-ply. Beryl Jarvis has reached Part 3 teaching beginners how to machine knit and this month her subject is single bed hems. Our regular features include news, books and fashion in Newsline plus our Book Review.
