Discover fabulous Fair Isle and intarsia in Issue 147 of The Knitter, on sale now! Our Winter Brights collection has creative designs to add colour to your seasonal wardrobe, including a vibrant Fair Isle tank top by Mary Henderson, a feminine fitted jumper from Jennie Atkinson, and a textured stripe cardigan from Sarah Hatton. We bring you a stunning sideways-knit cable sweater from Jo Storie, traditional Fair Isle mittens from Outi Kater, and sophisticated intarsia from Kaffe Fassett.


Also in this issue, we report back from our memorable visit to Rhinebeck, the famous wool festival in New York State. We chat with the sock designer and blogger Christine Perry (aka Winwick Mum), and Anna Feldman, the owner of the Wild and Woolly shop in East London. Penelope Hemingway shares her investigations into the history of traditional knitting sticks, while our masterclass from Jen Arnall-Culliford examines the 2×2 tubular cast-on in the round.

Plus, our special supplement includes an interview with Scottish designer Carol Meldrum, along with her latest knitting designs for a lace rib sweater with matching hat.
