I’m so excited: Tomorrow issue 18 of Knit Now Magazine will hit the newsstands – with one of my patterns in it! It’s been so great to see one of my designs, professionally photographed and styled. Almost like someone else made it…
Now I’m a grown-up designer
So, without further ado, here are the pictures:
These smart and stylish gloves are perfect for the military trend we’re still seeing on the high street this season. They feature a turned hem and knitted “froggings” (if that’s what they’re called) and are a perfect way to showcase your favourite buttons. The sample gloves were knit with a deliciously soft and silky yarn from Manos del Uruguay and are a real treat to wear (and knit). I know, because I knitted them.
What I like most about them is that they are so very versatile, depending on your choice of yarn and color. Knit in grey or black, with matching froggings and black or silver buttons they convey a sophisticated and elegant style. But an eye-popping color will make a great contrast with the severe, military look. You could go wild and knit the little crossbars in many contrasting colors or use several different styles of buttons for a bright, fun look to get you through the gray days of winter and early spring.
The magazine is available from 7th February 2013 in the UK and can be ordered from their webstore. There’s no digital version of it for now, but I’ll make a download available in a few months, once the exclusivity period runs out.
