In this issue why not make Lagertha the doll’s clothes (page 50) in time for meeting Lagertha herself in issue 4 so she’s all decked out for her own seasonal debut?
For a variety of tree decorations in both crochet and knit check out pages 32 and 38, ideal for fun makes ready for when that special time rolls around for putting up the tree. Plus we have some lovely wintery projects with cushions and mug cosies to make.

All this and so much more!
Happy crochet and knitting…
