‘Hygge’ is a Danish word encapsulating feelings of cosiness, warmth, and relaxing by the fire with friends – and we think it sums up our latest pattern collection perfectly! Snuggly knits abound, from Sarah Hatton’s indulgent jumper on our front cover, to the Icelandic-inspired yoked sweater from Rosee Woodland, plus cabled sweaters and socks, Fair Isle blankets and more.
Our designers have enjoyed exploring textured stitch patterns this month. Isabell Kraemer brings us a modern gansey, while Emma Vining uses lace to add stylised rubies to her cardigan. We also have a stunning lace shawl from Elizabeth Lovick, and a cabled capelet by Debbie Bliss.
Elsewhere in this issue, we show you how to make your finished projects look their best with our blocking masterclass, and meet the inspiring Danish designer Christel Seyfarth.
Plus, our free booklet contains a relaxed colourwork yoked cardigan that’s a great introduction to steeking!
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.
