Rowan Magazine 75 takes us on a knitting journey from the historic Sheffield Botanic Gardens in Yorkshire to a sun-drenched vineyard in the south of France.
Over 40 designs from your favourite Rowan designers using a wide range of spring summer yarns. We begin in Yorkshire with our Botanic Garden story. Summer silhouettes and lightweight layers are key to this collection, including tops, sweaters, cardigans and shawls. Taking inspiration from botanical gardens – from the plants to the glass structures – our designers have created fabrics using texture, lace, colourwork and embroidery in a palette of greens, neutrals and pops of bright florals.
Slip Into Summer is a story of modern summer knits which celebrate the slip stitch technique. Even in their simplest form, slip stitches can create unique multicolour patterns and here designers Lisa Richardson, Martin Storey and Georgia Farrell explore the endless possibilities resulting in a beautiful collection of garments and accessories using Summerlite 4ply and Creative Linen.
