What you need to know

Welcome to our latest knitalong! Over the next seven weeks, we’ll be bringing you a series of super cute characters and creations that can be used to decorate your Christmas wreath. They all use beginner-friendly stitches with a bit of shaping and simple colourwork. Each of the items for the wreath has a dual purpose, so don’t worry if you don’t fancy making a wreath, designer Nicola has provided bonus instructions on how to reuse each piece. We’re kicking off with the wreath cover, Fairy Lights and pretty poinsettia. Needles at the ready, knitters!

Please note the cover should be worked in four-row stripes, not six-row stripes as originally published. Apologies for the error.
[] Cont as set working in four-row stripe sequence until work meas approx 111cm, ending after a WS row and a complete yarn G stripe

How to: fix a dropped knit stitch


As soon as you spot a dropped stitch, put a stitch marker in it and anchor it to another stitch to stop it unravelling further. Grab a crochet hook and here we'll show you how to fix this.
