It’s finally time to knit for yourself again after making all those Christmas gifts. We’ve got loads of great ideas in this issue for quick knits just for you that won’t cost the earth. Debbie Bliss's cable pompom hat ticks all the high street trends, while Arne & Carlos’ Scandi mitts would be a great way to use up scraps of 4ply yarn. Or why not rummage through your stash for ideas for Phildar’s gorgeous patchwork scarf ? If you're looking for a fab top for the New Year, you can't go wrong with Belinda Boaden’s brilliant colourblock sweater. It’s a classic shape with a fun twist – just the thing to bring some cheer. When we heard about a charity’s plans to knit a jumper for a cow we just had to find out more. Read the amazing story in this issue, cosy up with our fur yarn reviews, and grab your chance to win some gorgeous Louisa Harding prizes!
