Santa came early! The December issue of I Like Knitting Magazine is now available for download or viewing. When the weather outside turns frightful, stay cozy with comfy scarves, sweaters, and hats that will keep you toastier than a mug of hot cocoa! Start creating holiday cheer when you receive this bi-monthly magazine on your iPad or Desktop.

     · 25+ merry& bright winter projects

     · Festive ideas for handmade holiday gifts
     · Expert articles & tips to banish cabin fever
     · Exclusive patterns for your winter wardrobe

It's the most wonderful time of the year with 25+ new Merry + Bright patterns! The chill air is no match for the knit pieces in the December issue of I Like Knitting. From quick knits for quick gifts like the Snow What Fun Cowl to the ultra-cozy Arctic Cardigan, these patterns will keep you busy all season long.

What I love about this magazine is that every issue has tutorials and tips. I enjoy the teaching elements that are provided so that you are not just getting patterns, which are totally fun, but there is some new techniques to learn.

In this issue is a fun pillow pattern with a photo tutorial along with a vest and hat KAL for the little ones in your life.

What I love also is that the issue is broken up into sections that makes it super easy to navigate and find just what you want to knit when you want.

In the section One Big Cozy Family:
Adirondack Mountain Socks

Isn't just the cutest! How adorable would your holiday family photos look with the littles dressed alike in the set
