We're always excited to talk yarn and knitting and answer any questions you might have!
I absolutely love the patterns in this issue and I’m definitely going to make several of them. I also want to promote the digital download alternative which is environmental friendly and enables to have the patterns always with you if needed, i.e. for yarn acquisition ;)
I love this publication
I love this publication. The care and thought that has gone into it shows its quality in every way—the photography, paper, ink, sustainability, and stories. And of course the designs and patterns are beautiful. I love picking it up every day to work through the pattern. I’m working on the cover page cardigan! And my daughters and I have flipped through all the pages to think about which patterns to try next. So inspiring!
Easy to read patterns bring advantage of revelry with inspiration of a magazin
