In The Knitter issue 107, on sale Tuesday 31st January, our designers have looked to tapestries and woven fabrics from around the world for their bright and cheerful patterns. These include a sweater by Vithard Villumsen inspired by antique kilim rugs, plus a stylish bag, a chic hat and slip stitch cowl, and a colourwork top by Mary Henderson.
Gansey patterns appear on Sarah Hatton’s modern cardigan; lace and cables combine on Romi Hill’s clever saddle-shoulder sweater for women; and soft cables make an impact on our luxurious cushion.
Historian Penelope Hemingway explains how to recreate historical knits from old photographs, while our masterclass this issue explores the technique of double knitting.
Plus, we have a beautiful pattern booklet from Rowan, featuring a stunning Fair Isle jacket by Lisa Richardson.
