Rowan 61 is back in stock! With two complementary collections, the Spring/Summer 2017 issue is sure to be a year round inspiration. "Peace" is a collection of classic, elegant women's designs including cable and lace knits. "Beachcomber" is a family collection which features several designs offering sizes for children through to men.
The Beachcomber designs put the versatility of Rowan Softyak DK front and center. This cotton and yak blend is sturdy while remaining soft and supple, and is excellent for transeasonal wear. In this collection it is used in everything from children's garments to accessories; from sophisticated colorwork to elaborate cables. Grab your copy now... or read on to view our favorite projects!
From the minute we saw this magazine, our hearts were set on Bayberry. This oversized jacket with a shawl collar hood is the epitome of luxury, yet ultimately wearable in Softyak DK.
Across the spectrum from Bayberry is the Urchin Wrap, whose beauty lies in simplicity. The deep rib and plush garter stitch let the yarn do the work while you sit back and enjoy the knitting.
Padina's allover eyelet lace pattern and three-quarter sleeves give it a distinctly feminine feel with subdued elegance. This intermediate project could be finished by summer, and carry you seamlessly into fall.
