Knitting has undergone a huge revival over the past few years, motivated by the great selection of new yarns available and the inspiring patterns to choose from. Gone are the days of limited colours and wool needing lots of TLC – today there are choices of machine washable wools, cottons, linens or synthetics in a myriad of colours. Some will even produce the pattern for you!
