Knitting Magazine – Issue 205
280 in stock
This month we are celebrating the yarns, spinners, dyers and designers of the UK and Ireland. We are excited to feature so many wonderful British wools in this issue, from major brands such as West Yorkshire Spinners via smaller operations like cover star The Fibre Company to Kent’s Romney Marsh Wools, a family-run farm whose owner Kristina Boulden hosted the issue’s sunny photo-shoot. There are 25 stunning knits that explore some of the beautiful wools grown around the UK, and celebrate the country’s brilliant yarn producers and dyers. Including Fern by Jacinta Bowie, a lovely lace sweater knitted in a soft and drapey DK blend of British Bluefaced Leicester and mulberry silk by Eden Cottage Yarns; cute cropped Adora cardigan by Bronagh Miskelly knitted in Stolen Stitches Nua by Irish designer Carol Feller; lacey Marigold shawl by Brian Smith which is knitted in Leeds-based Baa Ram Ewe, each shade of the yarn Titus is inspired by Yorkshire and Marigold is knitted in a gorgeous golden yellow called Brass Band; Sherril by Jo Allport a gorgeous cardigan with stunning Fairisle sleeves, picot neckline and contrasting collar, knitted in Cumbria-based The Fibre Co’s 100% British wool; and Diamond Scarf by Georgia Farrell a young British designer who shows off her classic geometry-inspired style in this cosy cabled scarf. Elsewhere in the issue we meet a couple who embarked on a new life sailing a floating yarn shop, and Cheryl Lowe, AKA Bored Knitless, who wowed judges on Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas last year. So with all that plus our regular features, there’s lots to keep you busy in the April issue of Knitting, out now!
