We know that our Naturally Soft Merino is great for knitting fabulously comfy and stylish knitwear for kids, but it's also a wonderfully versatile yarn that can be used for many other knits. Here are just a few of the gorgeous items in some of the knitting magazines available right now internationally.

The Stina Coat is perfect for keeping those chills out as winter approaches. Fun and chic in Grass and Fuchsia, those based in the US can find it here in the Knit Simple Holiday 2012 magazine.

Christmas is just around the corner and what better way to make your fireplace look cosy whilst housing all those lovely little gifts than the Snow Bird Stocking by Kristin Spurkland. This is also available in the American magazine Interweave Knits Holiday 2012 - here at Knitting Daily. Using 2 balls each of our yarn in Snow and Scarlet and 1 in Grass it will make a Christmas heirloom to bring out year after year.

Knitting Magazine in the UK is featuring the Elva Jacket in their November issue (on sale now). Knitted in Scarlet, this cute cable jacket will make the perfect Christmas gift for the fashion-conscious girl in your family. A super fun knit with it's intricate cables, it uses between 6-9 balls of our merino yarn depending on the size, and starts from ages 2-3 years graded up to age 6-7.

If you haven't seen our own free Christmas Stocking pattern go to for a choice of 3 lovely Swedish inspired designs. Each design takes just 3 balls of yarn - choose from a lovely cable, fun stripes or a more traditional stocking with a fairisle motif. Don't worry if you feel a little daunted by colourwork, the simple motif can be easily swiss-darned on top.
