Simply Knitting Magazine issue 75 goes on sale today, so if you’re not a subscriber make sure you get your copy! The magazine comes with a free clutch bag clasp and we've included four
patterns by Amanda Jones so you can knit your own stylish clutch to get you
through the festive parties.
It’s packed with delicious designs to keep you busy this winter, from Sue Bradley’s beautiful cardigan with Scandinavian-style colourwork to Anniken Allis’ elegant Fair Isle jumper.
There are also plenty of accessories to knit – such as Kirstie McLeod’s cabled hat, ideal for yourself or as a last minute gift. Our Quick & Easy Knits section could just as easily have been called Quick & Easy Gifts this issue, with eleven designs, including some pretty felted corsage buttons, wine glass charms and adorable mini stockings ideal for your tree or mantelpiece.
We’re particularly charmed by this issue’s toy, Alan Dart’s quirky Lucky Swine, inspired by the Glückschwein traditionally given in Germany and parts of Scandinavia as a New Year’s gift. His cheeky grin and curly tail are irresistible!
