We might not be jetting off to the tropics this summer, but that doesn't mean we can't inject a bit of sunshine into our knits! This month our designers have been inspired by tropical colour palettes and daydreams of sun, sea and sand! I love Jenny Watson's cute cotton jumper, the clever use of rib creates such a flattering fit. Paula's sunny cushion is the perfect way to add a bit of colour to any room.  

If you're looking for a quick knit, why not indulge in a little bit of nostalgia with our adorable Bagpuss pattern. He's such a lovely cuddly chap, and he brings back so many happy memories.  

If you're not sure what to knit first, grab yourself a nice cool drink and settle in for a good read. Our expert team have some great tips to help you polish up your knits and we're discovering the secrets of a colourful wardrobe. We took an inspiring look behind the scenes with independent yarn producer A Little Bit Sheepish and chatted to superstar designer Sachiyo Ishii about her cute creations.
