• Heavenly, Relaxed and Elemental

Herman just brought us a box full of the new Rowan magazines!

There are 147 pages of stunning photographs, informative articles and over 35 inspiring designs.

The first section is Heavenly, with a beautiful collection of ethereal and dreamlike designs, like Spook, by Sarah Hatton, knit in Kid Silk Haze:

Next up is Weekender, a colourful and fun to wear collection of relaxed designs inspired by 1960’s and 1970’s London. We like Sarah Hatton’s Capri cardigan, knit in Calmer:

Finally there’s Elemental, a sophisticated collection of gentle and unassuming designs inspired by the natural textures of rock and wood. I’m adding Lisa Richardson’s Stoney vest to my wish list. It’s knit in the wonderful Summer Tweed yarn that’s 70% silk and 30% cotton:

In addition to the fantastic designs there’s an informative section on sewing up your garments (I’m studying this one). There’s also a great article about going green with the new Rowan Purelife cotton (coming soon..) – it’s produced in a way that respects the environment and all those involved in creating it. And there’s a great profile of Sarah Hatton, one of Rowan’s talented in-house designers.

We also received a bunch of other fantastic new Rowan books, stay tuned for details…
