This month we’re looking at all the things our designers get obsessed with – from their favourite TV shows to computing to flora, fauna and magical animals. After all, it’s cool to be a geek these days.
We bring you 27 magical knits – including Maisie Smith’s striking Buffy jumper and Jo Allport’s designs inspired by the strong women in time-travelling TV series Outlander. If it’s accessories you’re after, how about a pair of gloves perfect for the young, impetuous and fiercely loyal heroine of the latest series of Star Wars films, Rey. We’ve also got a feature exploring the woolly ways to explore fandom – that looks at how and why these two different interests make such a perfect match. As well as a profile of indie dyer Lola Johnson, whose Third Vault Yarn business is inspired by her love of reading and the weird and wonderful people and places she comes across in books. With a great range of patterns plus all of our regular features, you’ll find plenty to keep you busy in the February issue of the Knitting magazine, out now!
