A Giveaway and The Long Cardigans of Magazine 62

Long cardigans: they are everywhere. From fine and floaty to textured and chunky. All the stores seems to have a version but……why not knit your own? Rowan’s latest magazine, number 62, has eight different designs to choose from and if you haven’t got a copy of this, their latest magazine, I am giving one away.
