What's in this Issue of Knit 'N Style

June 2006

In this issue we are welcoming spring with several transitional garments that will take you from late winter’s chill into more moderate temperatures, along with a preview for summer 2006. You can span the winter/spring season with Jeanie Wechler’s lovely Cable Jacket with Hood or Nicky Epstein’s Show Stopper Floral Coat embellished with her knitted flowers. Melissa Leapman bridges the seasons with her knit and crocheted lacy pullovers made with Phoenix, a 100% soy silk yarn, from South West Trading. Then there are the twin sets from Tahki and Skacel which are a perfect addition to your spring wardrobe. Summer makes its entrance with the Mitered Abstract Top from Valentina Devine, the Bamboo Top from Swedish Yarns and Plassard Yarn’s Cross-over Top.

In our feature article, Margaret Radcliffe enlightens us on working lace patterns. Margaret gives us many tips on what projects to pick, what tools and materials to use, how to correct mistakes and how to block. In conjunction with her article, there are several lace and eyelet openwork designs like Skacel’s Ajoure Pattern Cardigan with Shell and their lovely Aria Pullover with openwork sleeves and bodice. Unique Kolours’ great Wigwam Jacket and Wool in the Woods’ Flirty Shrug use easy-to-work openwork patterns as well that produce very feminine garments.
