Knitting Magazine – Issue 201
236 in stock
The December issue is all about getting cosy this winter and features lovely knits for wrapping up and either lounging comfortably at home or striding the streets enveloped in snugly layers. We have 25 beautiful designs that would make the perfect festive attire or the ideal crafty Christmas project. Featuring super-soft Caroline by Pat Menchini, which has a lovely fitted waist that will really show off a whole range of body shapes; Cable check cardigan by Bronagh Miskelly that is covered in warm cables for cold winter days; simple snuggly Elanor shrug by Jo Allport-a super-chunky quick knit to whip up if you are feeling chilly; and beautiful Aereo shawl by Brian Smith knitted in a gorgeous squishy two-colour brioche. We’ve got some truly inspiring women in our pages this month whose business were born out of a love of knitting and making, and whose enthusiasm and drive shine out in their work. Meet Sarah Shepherd, the brilliant costume designer whose glorious Ice Queen shawl is the edition’s cover star and Sara Prior a busy mum who turned a love of giant yarn into a successful business. We also have a special Indulgent Knits supplement that features 6 designs to treat yourself. Maybe you’ve worked hard all year and you deserve a little something special in your stocking; maybe you’re so busy caring for others that you need to be reminded to care for yourself too; or maybe you need a little something to brighten up those dark December days. That’s why we have put together this little supplement of truly indulgent knits- from pure cashmere to cosy alpaca and from quick-knit cowl to a lovely lace scarf. So with all that plus our regular features, you’ll find lots to entertain you in this month’s issue of Knitting, out now!
