Autumn Magazines, Patterns and Books

Autumn is happening! I can see the leaves falling from the trees as I write this! Have you started knitting warm sweaters and accessories for winter? Maybe you’re way ahead and are just sewing in the ends to your Christmas knits now. (No, me neither).

If you haven’t got knitting yet, we have some wonderful magazines, patterns and books to inspire you to get going.

The latest issue of Amirisu (Issue 14, Autumn 2017) is now in stock. Amirisu is a stylish Japanese/American co-publication that features many favourite designers.

Patterns

We’re also honoured to stock the printed patterns by one of our favourite designers, Isabell Kraemer! We have long loved her designs and now we have them in print, at the shop. We’ve all been busy casting on some of her projects.

Here is the Dexter cardigan knit in Woolfolk TYND in one of their new colours, dusty pink. The combination of this pattern and yarn is heavenly – it’s like wearing a cloud!

Isabella’s newest pattern Girl’s Best Friend is also a beauty.

Such a fun way to play with colour and pompoms or tassels.

We hope you’re as excited as we are about all of the new printed inspiration at the shop. Happy Autumn Knitting!
