Knitting Preview: November 28, 2020 Issue

We have a lovely tri-coloured sweater for you in this week’s knitting preview.

You’ll find the full pattern in our latest issue, in shops this week.

We used three shades of Caron Simply Soft Speckly in our striped sweater.

This lovely tweed-effect yarn is formed from an artistic mix of soft base shades and vibrant splashes of creative colour. Made from 100% acrylic, it has a soft texture, which is comfortable to wear.

We have used the shades Blue Gingham (61010), Snapdragon (61015) and Seashell (61009). If you would like to view the other colours in the range or want to order direct, visit

We have graded this sweater as easy — it is worked in rice stitch throughout, that is one row of K1, P1 rib and one row knit.

Sizes range from 76/86 cm (30/34 ins) to 137/147 (54/58 ins). Actual size is approx. 15/5 cm (6/2 ins) bigger. We would recommend you knit your usual size.

This is such a simple seasonal design that it will work up quickly. Why not treat yourself — or make one (or more!) as a gift.
