We have a cosy hat and scarf set for knitters and a step-by-step feature on festive napkin folding for you in this week’s bumper issue.

Yes, we have knitting and craft this week.

For the knitters we have a cosy hat and scarf set worked in UK Alpaca Superfine.

The scarf is worked in a lace pattern which forms over an 8-row repeat. Little pom poms on the short edges add a special touch. The shade used is Speckledy Gold.

Our hat is also worked in Speckledy Gold with an optional pom pom in Violet. The hat features a cable pattern, and the yarn is used doubled to make it extra cosy.

Designer Monica Russel has put together a yarn pack for the hat and scarf set and you can find details on how to order them in the magazine.
