Knit Now 98: Sneak Peek
This month we’re inviting you to switch off and cast on with us
Switch off from all the distractions of the world and treat yourself to some luxurious and relaxing knits. This issue we’re focusing on simple, classic designs that are soothing to knit and comfortable, as well as flattering to wear. Our cover jumper by Clare Devine is a perfect example – the modern shape and clever shaping will interest you while you knit, without being too complicated. As with all original designs, we’ve included instructions for a wide range of sizes.
This issue we’re also launching our brand-new knit-along pattern designed by Louise Tilbrook. In keeping with this issue’s theme, we’re taking this KAL as an opportunity to reflect as we knit, so hope you’ll enjoy considering Louise’s journaling prompt as you stitch your first square. If you’re looking for a quick project, I love the look of the Valencia shawl, which will be a joy to knit in this luxurious yarn.
The Build Your Basics book is your exclusive gift with this issue. We’ve worked with our talented designer and technical editor Michelle Hazell to create this essential reference book, which we hope you’ll use for years to come. This book gives you the ultimate freedom to create stunning classic garments in a huge range of sizes, in 4-ply, DK or aran-weight yarn. Not ready to cast on just yet? How about grabbing yourself a cup of tea and having a read first? If you’re looking for some expert tips for getting a great fit in your garments, don’t miss our feature by Karie Westermann.
