Every season Rowan publishes stacks of design books that are incredibly inspiring. When the new books arrive, we gather around, flip through the pages and drool over the fantastic new designs. There are always way too many choices…
This season is no exception. Rowan kicked off the Fall knitting season in July with Magazine 44, a special anniversary issue. Fabulous as ever.
The Cocoon Collection is another new Rowan book for Fall:
With sixteen enticing designs using the luscious Cocoon yarn, an uber-soft merino and kid mohair mix with a 14 stitch gauge for quick results. There are many tempting projects in this one.
And check out The Colourscape Chunky Collection:
This collection has fourteen terrific new designs by Sarah Hatton using the fantastic new Colourscape Chunky yarn by Kaffe Fassett. This 100% lambswool yarn is created by a unique process - only 300 kils per machine can be produced in a week. The colours of this yarn are absolutely amazing, from deep mysterious tones of purples, maroons and turquoise to the softness of dusty pastels. Drop by sometime and have a look at this beautiful new yarn.
