Magazine 63

The Knitter - - The Knitter Loves... - By Rowan

Filled with soft shapes, airy stitch tex­tures and del­i­cate colour pat­terns, Rowan’s new magazine for spring-sum­mer is a real treat! It has 38 de­signs for women us­ing sea­sonal yarns such as Sum­mer­lite, Cre­ative Linen, Hand­knit Cot­ton and Softyak.

A num­ber of projects fea­ture pretty, pic­to­rial colour­work in­spired by pot­tery mak­ers such as Wedg­wood, Spode and Delft. ‘Porce­lain’, for ex­am­ple, is a drap­ing ki­mono with in­tar­sia mo­tifs, cre­ated by Kaffe Fas­sett.

In­trigu­ing lace tex­tures add in­ter­est to a range of sum­mery lay­ers, in­clud­ing cardi­gans, light­weight jumpers and tops, and the ‘Kayla’ wrap-fronted waist­coat by Lisa Richard­son.

More vi­brant, trop­i­cal colours ap­pear on a shawl-col­lar coat, a textured tank top, and a chevron-striped cardi­gan. There’s also a wide choice of clas­sic wardrobe es­sen­tials, all sized to fit up to 50in busts or larger. £12.50. For stock­ist de­tails, call 01484 950630 or visit www.kni­trowan.com 15
