WELCOME TO ISSUE 15 OF

Olann and

The theme for the designs in this issue is cosy and warm.

Released just in time for Midwinter Night there’s been a definite chill in the air.  We’ve knits for you, your family and friends, plus a crochet cushion for your home.  There are our usual yarn and book reviews, plus a look at the podcasts we’ve been watching.  Our featured article on Nalbinding has been written by good friend Katherine and she’s even created a pattern for a Gingerbread Man.
