It’s COMPETITION TIME at Knit and Purl Garden! To celebrate the official launch today of the NEW Rowan Autumn / Winter season 2013, I’m giving away my brand new sample copy of the latest Rowan Knitting and Crochet Magazine 54. It maybe be gloriously sunny outside but you won’t want to miss the chance to win this – its stunning! As we knitters know, you need to plan ahead 🙂
Get your needles ready for some truly gorgeous designs this autumn!
Knitwear is currently sitting centre stage in the fashion world and many of the catwalk designers have drawn inspiration for their collections from historic references such as the Baroque. Fashion is also looking to the handicraft textiles of Eastern Europe and the nomadic lifestyle. The Rowan designers have taken these strong trends and worked the different key looks into three distinctive stories in Magazine 54:
Romancing – A beautiful collection of romantic lace and patterned knits photographed in the historic setting of Haddon Hall, Derbyshire.
Folk – The patterned folk textiles of nomadic eastern cultures inspires this colourful collection of women’s and men’s knits.
Essentials – A collection of the key shapes and textures on trend, designed into simple, easy to wear styles that compliment the season’s essential looks.
There are also 2 online collections available in this magazine with 6 exclusive free patterns in each of them! Click on the following links below to view these collections.
