Brighten your look with the most vibrant of knitwear — it’s all about colours this season. Whether a chunky sweater, wrap-around cardigan or dependable base layer, there’s a plethora of blues, greens, oranges, and pinks making repeat appearances — whatever you’re drawn to, take your pick. Lastly, if you can, try to support dedicated Aotearoa knitters who have brought back the joy and tradition of the handmade craft.
