A Look at Issue 6
The pattern pages for all issue 6 patterns just went live at Ravelry. You can now see all 12 unique designs together and start planning what to cast on first. Maybe knitting a swatch or two will make waiting for the release date a bit easier?
This issue has patterns for both advanced, adventurous knitters as well as beginners. They feature lace and colourwork, cables and bobbles and different textured stitch patterns. We have an interesting mixture of more rustic yarns and drapey merinos, alpacas and cashmere. Different yarn weights are also put to good use, with thicker yarns and needles used both for intricate, detailed patterns and quicker knits.
As you already know, issue 6 was shot in Iceland this August. The rugged landscapes are present throughout the issue, both to serve as inspiration and to provide the most stunning backdrop for the beautiful designs. We also made a travel guide to Reykjavik, listing some of our favourite places for shopping, relaxing and eating.
One of the things I find myself going back to time and time again are the in-depth interviews with some of our favourite makers. It’s always inspiring to hear where they’ve come from, what inspires them and how they describe this community of ours. This time you can read about The Queen of Brioche Nancy Marchant and about Hélène Magnússon, also known as the Icelandic Knitter, who’s also one of the designers featured in the issue.
To top it off, there are also some delicious, seasonal recipes for you to enjoy this autumn.
