The latest seasonal pattern magazine from Rowan has made a big impression on us! We particularly love the ‘Kinship’ collection, which was inspired by Rowan’s roots in the Yorkshire Dales. Dominated by loose, comfortable shapes and intricate stitches, it has 22 spectacular designs for women.
‘Foss’ is an oversized cable sweater with matching snood, knitted in the super-cosy Kid Classic yarn. There are elegant cable jumpers from Martin Storey, and a range of textured coats. Colourwork fans will love the patterning of the ‘Gransmoor’ Fair Isle jumper, the graphic look of the ‘Greenwood’ tunic, and the smart ‘Fishlake’ jumper by Marie Wallin.
Magazine 62 also includes 19 sophisticated patterns for workwear and evenings out. ‘Dawn Till Dusk’ includes softly textured sweaters using Kidsilk Haze and Fine Lace, draping cardigans and little tops, and jackets and accessories with beading. Stand-out designs for us include a boxy top with delicate beaded cables by Martin Storey, and ‘Twilight’, a fitted cabled jumper by Lisa Richardson. £12.50.
