This cushion is designed to be lovely and snuggly to cuddle up with. It’s inspired by traditional British Aran jerseys and cardigans, and the thick yarn and textured patterns make it a tactile treat. However, the design only uses two simple cable stitches to create the pattern, making it the perfect first cable project.

This headband can be worn on cold spring and autumn days, or be added as an extra layer in the depths of winter. The headbands are in all high street shops just now, but this is your chance to make your own individual version!

I loved the natural colours of these yarns, and wanted to create a hat that reflected the earthy theme in its design. This topknot hat is like a little pumpkin with a stalk, and will look cute on a boy or a girl. The yarns are soft and pure organic cottons, but also machine washable, a great bonus for new mums!
