Issue 18 — Weekend Getaway — takes time to relax in a little cottage by the forest. The versatile and comfortable knits are suited for both indoors and outdoors, and they are the perfect addition to your wardrobe as the days get colder.
Issue 18, Autumn 2023, includes:
- 11 knitting patterns (both charts and written instructions provided): 5 sweaters, 2 cardigans, 1 slipover, 1 shawl, 1 hat and 1 pair of mittens.
- An interview with the American knitwear designer and fashion historian Sydney Crabaugh, who specialises in vintage knits and runs her own virtual knitting school.
- An article about Shetland and its knitting traditions, with two inspiring designers — Gudrun Johnston and Mary Jane Mucklestone — as our guides.
- Jeanette Sloan’s Fibre Talk: a regular article on Jeanette chatting with interesting people. In this issue, she meets Tanis “Akutuq” Simpson, whose company produces yarn from qiviut: a fibre that comes from the undercoat of the muskox.
- Five Ways by our regular writer Päivi Kankaro, who gathers experts’ tips on mending your knits.
- Where I Knit: a regular piece that pictures people knitting in their favourite spot. In this issue, we meet Nora, who likes to knit on the rooftop of her home in Cologne, Germany.
- Seasonal recipes to inspire your autumn cooking.
- Book reviews.
Designers featured in this issue: Jenny Ansah, Marcela Chang, Melissa Clulow, Emma Ducher, Jenna Kostet, Ksenia Naidyon, Olga Putano, Tiia Reho, Anna Sjösvärd and Julia Wilkens.
The knits in the autumn issue are a real treat for texture lovers! Olga Putano’s Saunseray sweater is full of easy-to-execute cables, and the interesting detail in Emma Ducher’s Orée jumper is the ribbed lines created with twisted stitches on Reverse Stockinette Stitch. Ksenia Naidyon’s Barberry scarf features cables, moss stitch, Japanese wrapped stitches and simple lace.
The articles include an interview with American knitwear designer and fashion historian Sydney Crabaugh, who specialises in vintage knits. Gudrun Johnston and Mary Jane Mucklestone take us on an exciting tour to Shetland, and Jeanette Sloan introduces us to Tanis “Akutuq” Simpson, whose company produces yarn from qiviut: a fibre that comes from the undercoat of the muskox!“This issue is filled with inspiring knitwear and interesting stories, but what struck me the most was the Five Ways article about mending. Fixing your garments is important both for environmental reasons and for saving money. The knits we make with care deserve to be treated well throughout their lifespan.”
