Wondering which books to take with you on holiday this summer? We’ve spotted a few new releases that are ideal for your travels, whether you’ll be relaxing in the UK or overseas!
Jean Greenhowe’s Fabulous Fun-Knits
Jean Greenhowe’s new pattern book, Fabulous Fun-Knits (£3.95, PB, jeangreenhowe.com) is a collection of irresistible summer characters. Mirabelle the Mermaid frolics with Kevin the Baby Crab, Cowboy Bill and Cowgirl Kate.
There’s even a desert island (for a castaway knitter, of course!), pebbles, shells and seaweed - ideal for knitting on the beach, especially if you don't mind a bit of sand in your yarn! A mini sports car, a duo of tortoises and a pair of ladybirds (with their own lawn) complete the set.
