Summer’s here, and our thoughts turn to delicate stitch patterns and light, luxurious yarns. Issue 112 is filled with classic designs with a modern twist, including an exquisite textured top by Emma Vining, and a beautiful Faroese shawl by Elizabeth Lovick. Vintage inspiration can be seen in our pretty long-line lace blouse, Mary Henderson’s summery Fair Isle vest, and our 1940s-style sweater, influenced by knitwear worn by the Land Girls of the Second World War – and you can read more about these women in Penelope Hemingway’s article. We have interviews with popular designers Bristol Ivy and Jeanette Sloan, plus an exploration of the stories behind the hand-dyed colourways of The Yarn Collective, and the first in our new series of articles on British sheep breeds, which looks at the Border Leicester sheep. Our Masterclass gives an expert guide to advanced brioche knitting, and we have yarn and book reviews for you, as well as all the news from the knitting world. Plus, our special supplement features a relaxed yet stylish denim jumper, which will be perfect for walks on the beach!
The Knitter is also available as a digital edition, for Apple phones and tablets, Android phones and tablets, the Barnes & Noble Nook, and to read through Zinio as PDFs. All the links are here.
