The Knitter 155
We’re welcoming the start of autumn in Issue 155, and we’ve filled our pages with creative projects for you to cast on for the new season!
Let us inspire you with modern Fair Isle and lace, classic cables and textured stitches. Our designs for men, women and children include a colourwork tank top by Outi Kater, a chunky cabled cardigan by Dario Tubiana, cosy accessories from Juliet Bernard and Sarah Hatton, and a feminine jumper by Jennie Atkinson.
We look to Shetland this month, as Viveka Velupillai delves into the roots of the island’s unique knitting dialect. We also discover the story behind a new Shetland yarn from West Yorkshire Spinners. Our focus on cable knitting includes top tips from leading experts such as Norah Gaughan and Martin Storey, plus a masterclass on cabling without a cable needle. We also take a look at British sheep breeds in our yarn review pages, and meet the farmer behind Caithness Yarns. Plus, our special supplement features a stylish cabled jumper designed by Emma Vining.
