We’ve been so excited about our very special Alan Dart design for Simply Knitting issue 100, and he certainly didn’t disappoint!
If you haven’t got your issue yet (it arrives in UK shops tomorrow!), here are some of the knitting patterns you’ve got to look forward to:
A sturdy jacket by Sirdar for him (handsome man and chicken sadly not included)
Lisa Richardson's elegant backless jumper for her
A stylishly cabled poncho Sirdar
A pretty lacy bolero (ideal for festive get-togethers) by Pat Menchini
Gorgeous hot water bottle covers from Blacker Yarns
A felted snowflake bag by Helen Ardley
Cute crimson socks by Rachel Coopey
Six Christmas decorations – quick knits from Jane Burns!
And of course, Alan Dart’s trio of carolling penguins named Noel, Holly and Nick. We love their cute accessories – from hats and scarves to a weeny knitted lantern to light their way!
