A mug of tea on a cold morning, the last chapter of a good book, running through a quiet city park…these are a few of my favourite things. And knitting. Obviously.

Brown Paper Packages is easy but fabulous with a bold mosaic pattern that gives it a real punch. You only ever use one colour per row - it’s slipping stitches that makes the pattern appear, not juggling two strands of yarn at the same time. The centre section is knit sideways and seamed and then the top and bottom edges are worked from picked up stitches. Destined to be one of your favourite things to work on and to wear.
