The knitter 164 main

Fresh Designs – on sale 27 May

Issue 164 is on sale now, and it brings you modern shapes and classic stitch patterns for spring-summer. Our designers have used vibrant hues and elegant details to fill our pages with beautiful colour. Our cover project by Nicola Diggins combines stripes and slip stitches for a subtle, sophisticated look, while stunning colourwork makes an impact on cardigans from Mary Henderson and Arne & Carlos. We have beautiful lace for you, too, such as an elegant two-colour shawl from Jem Arrowsmith, and a chic lace cardigan by Francesca Hughes. Other inspirational projects include a classic houndstooth jacket from Debbie Bliss, a cushion featuring traditional Fair Isle motifs, and smart cable knits for men and children.


Also in this issue, we discover how to use plants from the garden and hedgerow to create beautiful hand-dyed yarns, and we review artisan wools from Britain’s spinning mills. Plus, our special supplement includes a timeless cable sweater designed by Jody Long, and an exploration of Knitting Fever’s international yarn brands.
