What you need to know

Practise your colourwork with Helen Ardley’s cosy combo

The colder weather is almost here, so make sure you’re well wrapped up in this delightful duo. Stranded colourwork creates a double-layered fabric so it’s perfect for frosty mornings. The tree motif gives the set a lovely Scandinavian feel and the icy blue, cream and grey tones are right on trend. Later in the year, why not switch up the shades to make the design look like little Christmas trees?
