Don't miss this edition, buy your copy now.
With the cold weather upon us, we're welcoming yarn season with open arms, quite literally as in this month's Masterclass you will learn the basics of arm knitting. We couldn't think of much else that's as cosy and gratifying as a fast-growing knitting project on our lap. So, why not try your hand at making a chunky knitted doorstopper, DIY wall hanging (make it in under 20 minutes), or a quick-knit hat and chunky merino shawl with fringing to swoon over? There's a project for every level from beginners to intermediate makers. Give it a try – it's easier than you think!
Also inside the Tactile issue is a show-stopping circular weave made with lots of leftover yarn. The end result is a super fluffy circle of joy that looks like someone's let off a confetti cannon in the snow. Make this handmade wreath in time for Christmas.
Whether it’s eco beauty, sustainable fashion or aspirational homes, Mollie is full of inspiration for creative living.

Why Mollie Makes became Mollie
We’re so excited to introduce you to the new Mollie on 19th May. The rebrand comes in answer to the ever-evolving creative community and the way many of us, as busy individuals, are gravitating towards simple projects with big impact – particularly for our immediate environment.
The new Mollie brings you more interiors-focused DIYs so you can create a beautiful home with your own hands. Making sustainable living accessible is also at the heart of Mollie, with inspiring ideas for refashioning existing wardrobe garments and mending much-loved items, plus tried and tested green beauty and cleaning product recipes.
Over the years we have come to be known in conversation, by designers and readers alike, as just, Mollie – and we love that! It’s how we refer to the magazine within the team and we’re glad that you’ve also taken a less formal approach to referring to our magazine.
So, we’ve dropped the ‘Makes’ in name, though certainly not in content. Each issue, independent designer-makers create 14 trend-led, beginner-friendly craft projects, giving you the ideas, skills, and confidence to take your creativity to the next level. Who said a fresh start is exclusive to the new year? Be inspired to live a creative life with Mollie. On sale now in a supermarket near you.
