In this Fall & Winter issue, we’re inviting you to come sit and knit with us while getting lost watching the flames of our campfire dance. 13 modern, wearable knitwear designs will keep us cozy and warm, not only around the fire, but also in our everyday adventures.
Texture, cables, colorwork or soothing stockinette – no matter which one speaks to you at the moment, you’ll find something you love in these pages. Speaking of love: The love for this planet and carefully caring for it while we’re out in nature is the thread that weaves through this issue’s essays and illustration.
