Simply Knitting issue 203

Issue 203, on sale 10 September 2020

Over the past few months we’ve been overwhelmed with stories about how people have coped or are still coping through this pandemic using their knitting to ‘hold their hand’. As we enter the shorter months of the year in the UK, the knitting community is going to be required more than ever, and we’re here with you, all the way.


We all know there’s little more reassuring than a familiar project you can heave onto your lap and click away with in your favourite knitting spot. We have plenty of gorgeous designs for you to get your needles into this issue, including a cheerful floral intarsia jumper by Dario Tubiana and a quick and easy tutorial on how to knit with beads.

At this time of year many of us are looking forward to all the fun Halloween brings, and we’re right on board with that – just check out Jane Burns’ amazing haunted house jumper and mitts, Susan Cowper’s spooky tea cosy and Amanda Berry’s cute monster toy in this issue. They’re the perfect knits to make you smile from ear to ear.
