Sherbet The Bear

Sherbet The Bear

At over 20cm tall, Sherbet is just the right size for children to hug. While the patchwork effect looks complicated, it involves only simple intarsia colourwork. Follow Sachiyo's instructions to make up the bear so the end result looks neat, professional and ready to be loved.

Knit A Brazil Flag

Knit A Brazil Flag

We're super excited about the Rio Olympics and Paralympics this summer. Support this year's host nation with a small knitted Brazilian flag. Testing your colourwork skills, the flag is ideal for using up your stash of DK yarn. Uses the intarsia colourwork method for the flag’s bold yellow and blue shapes, with a small amount of Fair Isle to create the white detail in the centre. Why not incorporate the design into a scarf, cushion, bag or blanket?

As the weather warms up, we're packing up the picnic basket and searching for the perfect grassy patch in the park. Knit Sian Brown's classic picnic blanket to top off a sunny afternoon picnic.
