"I think we are all so increasingly obsessed and addicted to the new… that there's a danger of us forgetting to look back, appreciate, and hold onto the amazing things, values, skills, and traditions that previous generations and the past offer us. I'm really interested in marrying the old and the new… wearing a modern sleek designed hat, hand-knitted, old-school style in real wool!" -Lily Cole
These 30 projects are inspired by some of the most popular and fashionable accessories sold by The North Circular. Each project has clear instructions and beautiful photography. There is also advice on ethical buying and sourcing local, sustainable wool. Handmade doesn't have to mean compromising on style or quality.
