The latest issue of Knitty has been released and as ever there are some truly beautiful patterns so be sure to go and have a look for yourself.

My three favourites in this issue are:

lunaticBEAUTY

Lunatic Fringe

Lunatic fringe by Jennifer Dassau is a beautifully, quirky shawl knitted in Terra by The Fibre Company which is an aran weight yarn.  Knitted from the bottom up, creating the fringe as you go to form an unusual, asymmetrical shape.

easyBEAUTY

Easy As Pie is a technicolour blanket by OneHandKnits and is knitted in Sirdar’s Baby Bamboo which is a standard double knit yarn.  Clever use of short rows and colour work creates this vibrant, funky blanket.

Buttonbox

Last but not least and one that I have had to add to my ever extending ‘to knit’ list is Buttonbox by Elizabeth McCarten.  This beautiful waistcoat is knitted in one piece using Brooklyn Tweed’s Shelter yarn which is an aran weight.  The shaped waist and shawl collar make it a very flattering style, whilst the little box stitch pattern adds enough interest to the overall look of the knitted fabric.

If these patterns haven’t been enough to tempt you (why?), it might just interest you to know that there is a new coloum in the magazine – ‘Techniques with the Neurotic Knitter’.  Kristin Fraser aka The Neurotic Knitter has a look at cast ons this issue via videos.  The techniques she covers for Spring/Summer are the Backwards Loop, Cable, Knitted and the Long Tail methods.  Great if you only know the one cast on method.

i also urge you to check out the Templeton Square Competition Winners to see just how ingenious some knitters are.

Happy knitting!

I'm a knitter - I have the bug so bad that I have my own knitting shop called surprisingly enough, KNIT. I'm lots of other things to. Wife, mum, wool shop owner, volunteer, baker, in fact I'm sooo many things it would take to long to list. No matter what else I am the knitting is always there, some where.
