This month’s issue of Let’s Knit, we’ve gone bonkers for British wool! From an in-depth look into the changing wool industry, to exclusive designs using British yarn we are pulling out all the stops to celebrate the best that Great Britain has to offer.
Wrangler is a pair of cosy wrist warmers with a simple faux fleur-de-lis pattern. They will make a sweet little Christmas gift – or you could keep them for yourself as the weather turns colder. You can also receive a bonus Christmas gifts book, with seven extra patterns to knit before the festive season.
