Knitting Magazine – Issue 158, September 2016
The New Fairisle: our designers have taken traditional Fairisle knitting and interpreted it in striking, modern ways.
We’ve got 28 fabulous knits, including jumpers, cardigans, wraps, cowls, and even a pair of Scandi Socks designed by Erika Knight. Scandi style has also inspired this month’s home knits, with a bumper crop of designs including cushions, a bedside rug and cute Norwegian Chair Socks to stop chairs scratching your wooden floors. Plus we’ve got some trendy and super-cute designs for the little ones in your life. We also report on the history and future of knitting in Fair Isle and the Shetlands, designer Eline Oftedal tells us all about herself and her amazing double life knitting and working in the Norwegian space industry, and ‘Purl About Town’ Laura Parkinson clears up your questions about skeins, hanks, balls, cakes and cones of yarn.
