The Knitter issue 87
On Sale Date
21st July 2015

The Knitter issue 87 is on sale now, with stunning, lightweight knits to complete your summer wardrobe. Our Summer Design Collection focuses on exquisite textures, interesting constructions and light, wearable knits. This month, Emma Vining’s talent for creating intricate stitch patterns brings us both the delicate, seamless top on our front cover, and a lightweight daisy-chain wrap.


Sarah Hatton’s fresh, feminine jumper has a lovely horseshoe lace pattern, while the cropped cardigan by Joanna Scarce uses an hourglass rib stitch and is knitted from the top down. For a more relaxed feel, take a look at the colourful striped sweater from Eline Oftedal, the loose kimono-inspired lacy shrug by Lisa Richardson, and Clare Devine’s bright and cheerful sock design which features a self-striping yarn.


Meanwhile, there’s plenty more lace to enjoy with the geometric lace motifs of DROPS Design’s triangular shawl, and the feminine cotton t-shirt with travelling stitches and lace motifs by Bergére de France. Meanwhile, we explore three ways to add pockets to a knitted garment in this months masterclass, chat to Emma Vining about her influences and inspiration, and look ahead to The British Wool Show and the Great London Yarn Crawl.


Plus, to make your summer just a little bit more special this issue includes a stunning summer top by Amanda Crawford, free from Yarn Stories.
