Jane Burns’ Happy Days bunting is so cheerful and really easy to knit. The individual pennants are great for knitting on the go and stitching them to a long length of ribbon is such a simple yet effective way of stringing them. I’m heading off on a girly camping trip soon and what better way to personalise my tent than with this handmade bunting? Our pitch will be the prettiest on the campsite!

Lace shawls are absolutely beautiful – no matter how many I see, their intricacy never fails to take my breath away! I am making a lace scarf at the moment – no tricky shaping problems – but I am in complete awe of Anniken Allis’ latest offering for our lace special, Eternally Yours. The colour choice, in particular, is just stunning!

I’m mad about baby knits; as far as I’m concerned, there’s just nothing cuter! We really enjoyed meeting our lovely little model for this photoshoot and all agreed that she looked adorable in Jane Burns’ Seaside Special sun hat. Summer hats always get me excited for the holidays and this little nautical number brought back lots of happy memories of splashing around at the seaside and playing in the sun. What’s more, this project is great for novice hat-knitters so I can see that Seaside Special will be a big hit. If you have a little boy in your life, you might want to replace the bow with a boat shape or an anchor motif to suit the aspiring sailor!
Why I chose our cover project
Sarah Neal, editor:
I do love our summer issues; there’s something so joyful and fresh about bright cotton yarns and pretty stitch patterns. The Hello Sunshine cardigan is the perfect summer knit: light, simple and easy to wear with everything. I love the bird print dress too!
