Knitting Traditions Fall 2015

Magazine Single Issue

Knitting Traditions, Fall 2015 features stores and projects that reflect how an original design or technique transitioned into something else. Sometimes it happened slowly over the years through multiple makers, other times, we see necessity cause dramatic shifts in knitting: in wartime, craft can take on a new meaning in urgency. This issue credits the knitters who appreciate the value of quality craftsmanship and low history – people who enjoy knitting traditions. They beautifully recreated pieces using techniques and patterns that have traveled across time and space.

Inna Voltchkova’s Simple in Russian Scarf is a classic Orenburg project while Katrina King’s stole shows how the same traditions can adapt to new colors, shapes, and techniques. Vintage Fashions and Victorian patterns still inspire us today: our projects include a Spencer jacket, shawls, hats, and bags reminiscent of English traditions, plus and array of swatches and edgings from nineteenth-century magazines.
