So, I did manage to finish my Lourdes cardigan from Rowan Knitting & Crochet Magazine Number 55, a design by Vibe Ulrik using one of my favorites yarns, the beautiful Panama, although now discontinued.
I had to add a few extra rows to the neckline area as it was way too short in the upper shoulder area for me but this worked out well and I have been wearing it quite a lot ever since.
The most recent magazine from Rowan is their Knitting & Crochet Magazine Number 60 and I have a copy to give away to one of my subscribers. Read on to find out what you have to do to win a copy.
This latest issue celebrates Rowan’s 60th Magazine with two collections, Tempest and Felted Tweed, featuring Rowan’s most exceptional yarns and designers including Lisa Richardson, Martin Storey and Kaffe Fassett.
The Tempest Collection includes 26 designs for men and women, taking inspiration from rugged seascapes and embracing cosy, wearable pieces for those cold winter months. Here’s a few that I would like to knit up from the Tempest Collection.
This short-sleeve yoke jumper called Nyla designed by Marie Wallin is first on my list from this magazine. I fancy knitting it in blue shades and will probably change the design to long sleeves…..
This long and loose cardigan called Umbra, designed by Martin Storey and knitted in Hemp Tweed…….
This cuddly hooded jacket called Cookie designed by Sarah Hatton and knitted in Brushed Fleece…..
Lisa Richardson has designed the second story; Felted Tweed. Using the eye-catching colour palette of Felted Tweed and Felted Tweed Aran this collection features beautiful colour-work and unique shaping for the 17 designs. My favorite, Tabert, features two designs: an open jacket ………
and a slouchy hat, both knitted in Felted Tweed and Felted Tweed Aran…….
