Get set for autumn with Issue 168, on sale now! To inspire your seasonal knitting, we bring you our special ‘Autumn Forest’ pattern collection. It’s filled with colourwork and cable designs, including a checked cardigan by Mary Henderson, an elegant cabled jumper by Emma Vining, a Fair Isle sweater from Carol Meldrum, and a raglan sweater with modern cabled sleeves by Jo Storie.


Jacinta Bowie brings us a feminine take on the classic English cricket sweater, while Mary Henderson plays with gradient yarn for her lacy wrap, which can also be worn as a poncho. Other lovely designs include a Fair Isle yoked sweater for children, a cabled hat, and a vintage-inspired cabled A-line jumper by Debbie Bliss.

We explore the incredible colourways of Urth Yarns, discover the new Almanac Series from The Fibre Co., look ahead to the Knitting and Stitching Show, and spend a day in the company of the team at the John Arbon Textiles mill. Plus, our special supplement features a modern top with a fascinating construction, designed for us by Francesca Hughes.
