They say that variety is the spice of life, and it’s certainly one of the things that makes knitting so enjoyable! Why not try something new this month – perhaps the mosaic knitting on Emma Vining’s chic cardigan, the steeking techniques required on the Fair Isle and lace cardigan by Mary Henderson, or perhaps a yarn you’ve never used before, such as the Exmoor Horn wool of Eline Oftedal’s spring jacket?
Exploring different knitting methods is the theme of A Year of Techniques, a project from Jen Arnall-Culliford, which we look at on page 62. She has also written our masterclass on adjusting sleeve widths, to help us achieve a better fit.
Elsewhere in the magazine, we have a beautiful beaded shawl that would be perfect for a summer wedding, a modern gansey, an intricately cabled poncho, colourful intarsia, delicate lace, and so much more. And you can plan your next trip to a wool festival with our essential show guide for 2017.
Plus, we have a beautiful cable rib blouse for your spring wardrobe in our free supplement!
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.
