Creative Knitting Magazine

Today we received a new magazine to our shop, Creative Knitting. If some of the more complicated patterns in Interweave Knits and Vogue Knitting intimidate you, this is the perfect magazine for you to try!

There are a whopping 25 patterns included, along with technique articles on knitting with beads, the SSK stitch, short rows, and duplicate stitch. The instructions for each pattern begin on the page showing the completed object, then continue in the back of the magazine. Most patterns are rated easy or intermediate. There are no yarn recommendations used, but a yarn weight (sport, worsted, etc.) and gauge are given. Knit up in a cotton or rayon, these simple, elegant patterns are perfect for Florida summer knitting!
