This month we’re celebrating the fashion of the fifties with 24 vintage knits inspired by nipped-in waists, flared skirts and Hollywood glamour of the decade. Bronagh Miskelly presents us with her mid-century modern Wisteria twinset, a light and easy to wear design; Pat Strong brings her ribbed Vintage Lace Tee and Retro ‘Woven’ Bag; put your lace skills to the test with Jo Allport’s stylish Audrey cape, perfect as summer knitting – in a beautiful colour-changing yarn! We also explore the art of ribbed lace chevrons, with a detailed masterclass on this fabulous technique (dense yet open, it has a textured feel that’s great for all seasons), and a pattern to go with it. Elsewhere we have the second-part of our hap knit-along and ask Nina Dodd, AKA The Duke of Woolington, about her project to create stealthy urban camouflage knit, plus much more. So travel back in time with our gorgeous collection of knits in the June issue of Knitting, out now!
