Knitting & Crochet Magazine 54 sees 2013 as the perfect season for Rowan, as knitwear sits center stage of the fashion world. Many of the catwalk designers have drawn inspiration for their collections from historic references, such as the Baroque. Fashion is also looking to the handcrafted textiles of Eastern Europe and the nomadic lifestyle.
The Rowan designers have taken these strong trends and worked the different key looks into three distinctive stories:
Romancing - A beautiful collection of romantic lace and patterned knits photographed in the historic setting of Haddon Hall, Derbyshire, England.
Folk - The patterned folk textiles of nomadic eastern cultures inspires this colourful collection of women's and men's knits.
Essentials - A collection of the key shapes and textures on trend - designed into simple, easy to wear styles that compliment the season's essential looks.
There are also 2 online collections available in this magazine with 6 exclusive free patterns in each of them!
