The Knitter Issue 31 – On sale 18 April 2011

18th April 2011

<img src="/sites/default/files/2011-04-the-knitter-issue-31.jpg" width="170" title="TKN31.cover" alt="The Knitter magazine, issue 31">We seek out designs for nostalgic shapes in pretty shades, playing with colour and lace. Our new deputy editor, Rosee Woodland, talks us through her latest projects and we take a sneak preview at Fyberspates’ first-ever pattern collection.

We've also embraced the travel bug, with Susan Crawford taking us to the craft shops of Paris and Mel Clark offering a look at Antipodean knitting.

Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne introduce us to designer Ann Weaver – “the thinking knitter’s knitter.”

Our masterclass from Judy Furlong will enable you to add knitted edgings to your shawls, ideal for Anniken Allis’ Lightning Shawl pattern on page 72.
