knit.wear magazine: curated for the modern knitter
In this beautiful issue, we’ve explored three different aspects of simplified knitwear. Explore colorwork knitting in our Modern Fair Isle story, featuring five stranded pullovers with pared-down colors and striking motifs. Curl up with our Comforting Cables story, which celebrates knitters’ favorite techniques without overcomplicating things. Find knits that feature a prominent cable but keep the rest of the garment minimalist. Get Back to Basics with designs made for movie nights, reading, podcasts, commutes, and traveling. These designs feature a bit of texture, a bit of ribbing, and occasionally a wee cable.
Take a break from life and venture with us to the Faroe Islands to learn about Navia, a yarn company thousands of years in the making. Explore an alternative method of working the three-needle bind-off with Roxanne Richardson that leaves a flat chain stitch on one side and a purl ridge on the other. Work the chain on the right side for a gorgeous visible seam or work the purl ridge on the right side to blend perfectly with garter stitch. Finally, read an essay about a new knitter’s journey to body- and self-acceptance through knitting her first garments.
