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
