Novelty jumpers are firmly back in fashion and now you can make your own - give them to friends and family, or keep them for yourself.
Famous for the distinctive jumpers he wore on breakfast television in the 1970s and 80s, Gyles Brandreth, together with his daughter Saethryd, has designed new, modern patterns and brought to life some of the classic designs of his past. All will get your fingers itching to pick up your needles.
Knitted entirely in stocking stitch, and accompanied by detailed charts that show you how to create the witty and inventive motifs, the designs come with a section of tips and techniques that mean even beginner knitters can have a go with confidence. So whether you fancy making his & her 'tuxedos' for you and a loved one, a fluffy poodle for someone special or a birthday cake to celebrate a significant anniversary, there are jumpers for everyone and for every occasion.
Gyles Brandreth is the former MP for Chester, reporter on BBC1's The One Show and not-so secret knitting fan - he even called his autobiography Under the Jumper. He has written a variety of books, from murder mysteries to royal biographies, has performed in the West End and is a regular on Radio 4's Just a Minute.
Saethryd Brandreth is a bestselling author, editor, journalist and ghostwriter.
