Knitting Traditions Magazine
Spring 2016 Issue
Knit your way through history as Knitting Traditions goes "Out and About!"
Wraps, bags, chemisettes, arm warmers, slippers, socks, hats, and a muff with a hidden pocket take you anywhere in style. Read about the men and women strolling around Paris in the nineteenth century, then knit tiny dolls dressed in period clothing. Discover the knitterly side of British novelist Penelope Fitzgerald, a woman who published her first books when she was nearly 60 years old. Follow Cynthia LeCount Samaké to the Andes in the 1970s, when she began her seminal research on Peruvian knitting. Travel back to the Middle Ages, then fast forward to Victorian England as Laura Ricketts translates stained glass rose windows into a beautiful tam. See how Victorian knitters appropriated muffs and lacy head coverings, then make your own.
With six wraps, five bags, and other projects, you'll find anything from lace to cables to colorwork.
