We’re updating some older elements, and keeping the most important ones, says knit.purl editor Lisa Shroyer. With a sophisticated sensibility and a range of projects that challenge knitting convention, knit.purl celebrates authentic luxury for every day. Each issue features sleek, simple, artful handknits for the thoughtful knitter, in-depth technique articles that refine tradition, design how-tos and inspiration and much more. Lisa continues by saying, “The packaging has changed a bit, but at the end of the day, this magazine is all about clean, contemporary, intriguing knitwear.”
Our Fall/Winter 2014 knit.purl issue explores striking knit-purl combinations, big gauges, bold colorwork, tailored sweaters, cool accessories and more. Michelle Hunter introduces readers to “Navajo ply knitting,” an innovative technique that allows for quick changes between single and triple-strand knitting. Additionally, knitters get to live New York Fashion Week vicariously through the work of Jasmine Gonzalez, a budding knitwear designer. Artist and designer John Brinegar tells readers all about his new pattern collection, all inspired by acrobats, the theater and circus acts (two of these new patterns are exclusively available in knit.purl’s Fall/Winter 2014 issue.) Finally, twenty-three essential new knitting patterns for fall, including pullovers, cardigans, and accessory items to keep heads, necks and hands warm throughout the cold seasons round out this new and improved issue.

This is a truly beautiful magazine, one that made me want to raid my yarn stash and get knitting!

Many different patterns are included, it seems as though the editors tried to include many different styles to please all readers...plus the designs are up to date, and quite beautiful.  I've gotten so tired of looking at magazines which will remain un-named that have out of date patterns in them.

Of course, the magazine has the usual advertisements, but I almost enjoyed looking at the ads as much as the patterns and stories!

At the back of the magazine there is a listing of knitting abbreviations, pictures of different stitches, and a project index, which are all very helpful, especially if you are knitting a project that has a stitch you don't normally use, it's an easy reference.

All in all, a very good magazine which I've found myself looking at quite often, kind of a feast for the eyes and the knitting soul!
