Designer Knitting Early Winter 2014

There’s no shortage of beautiful patterns in this issue, starting with the cover garment by Marie Wallin:

Designer Knitting


Knitted in a beautiful selection of monochrome shades of Rowan Kidsilk Haze with glistening beads this garment is a real showstopper!

If you like mohair but fancy a smaller project, why not try Nancy Marchant’s intriguing brioche lace scarf in champagne shades of Debbie Bliss Party Angel?

Designer Knitting

Using a combination of brioche rib and lace stitches to create a delicate reversible two colour fabric really makes this scarf something special, but if you’ve not tried brioche stitches before there is a detailed tutorial to guide you through it, so why not have a go?

Last but not least, if you fancy a cosy project to snuggle into, this cuddly cowl by Marie Wallin could be just right!  Knitted in beautifully soft Rowan Lima held double with an edging worked in Rowan’s new Fur yarn (made with 97% Wool and 3% Polyamide), this on trend cabled cowl will knit up quickly and keep you warm all winter.
