A note from Kathleen: I just saw the Fall 2011 issue of Interweave Knits, and it's really fantastic! I absolutely fell in love with Heather Zoppetti's Dahlia Cardigan (pictured at left).
The intricate-looking flower motif on the back of the cardigan are reminiscent of one of my favorite types of needlework, an old-fashioned doily. The sleeves grow out of the simple rectangle for a loose, drapey cardi that's so beautiful.
I love the detail on the sleeve cuff, too (pictured below left). This piece is versatile too—you can wear it loose and swingy in front or closed up to achieve a cowl-like look.
The Dahlia Cardigan might have just cut in line and moved to the top of my queue!
Along with a new issue, we've got a new subscription option! We've teamed up with Zinio to offer a digital subscription that's delivered right to your computer, iPad (hooray!), Android, or whatever form of tech you like best. I love this option because it's so perfect when you just have to have it; which is how I feel about the Dahlia Cardigan.
There so many must-knits in the new Fall 2011 Interweave Knits. Here's editor Eunny Jang to tell you more!
Fall into Place
We knitters, we know that time and season are fluid concepts.
It might be August, but we're already dreaming of cool, crisp October. It might be ninety degrees in the shade, but we're digging through baskets of wool and breaking out our cable needles. We need to prepare—knitting a sweater doesn't happen in a weekend, so we'll take that head start on fall cardigans and pullovers, thank you very much. Mitten knitting over a slice of peach pie—what could be more natural?
In this Fall issue of Interweave Knits, we've gathered ideas for knits that work for every week of the fall—light, lacy pieces for warm September days that mellow into chilly evenings ("All in a Golden Afternoon"); rustic colorwork for harvest fields ("The Teleidescope Turns"); bold stitch work in big yarns for when the weather turns downright cold ("The Elements of Knitting"). And we've got three simple little layering pieces just right for wearing as cardigans or jackets ("Knitting Interrupted").
We've got you covered—literally.
And along with juicy knitting projects we're exploring techniques, fibers, and designers' studios in this issue: Rediscover double knitting with Alasdair Post-Quinn in "Extreme Double-Knitting;" learn something new about Shetland wool in "The Very Stuff"; and come into the studio with the owners of Kelbourne Woolens in "Kate and Courtney on Courtney and Kate."
Our knitting adventures are taking us far afield this season, helping you get inspired to make something new.
Get a digital subscription and get your hands on the issue even sooner—after all, fall will be here before you know it.
