Knitting & Crochet Magazine 56
Rowan Knitting & Crochet Magazine 56 is a collection of 41 patterns split among three main themes. The two main stories, Wilderness and Craftwork, reflect the major trends for winter and, to contrast with the two main stories, the Essentials collection of the magazine will concentrate on the key shapes of the season. The Wilderness story has a strong Scottish influence throughout with plaids, checks and Fair Isles being the main pattern inspirations. Fairisle and jacquard patterning are patchworked together creating a totally modern look. Yarns are phased together using subtle, blended colors. Craftwork is inspired by an artisan approach to traditional craft in a celebration of pattern, colour and texture, heavily influenced by the Bauhaus and Arts and Crafts movement. The Essentials story is focusing on the key shapes the season, is completely plain in colour and translates into simple and easy to wear styles.
