 K147 Final Cover

The bumper October issue of Knitting is always our favourite. Knitting really comes into its own in autumn and winter and we love to look at the new season trends and which shapes and shades will be influencing our knits for the next year to come.  

(Here's a sneak peek...)

We also have a bumper crop of gorgeous, fashionable, wearable designs for you to pore over, add to your queue and wear with pride.

We have two trend stories in this issue; City Style and Simple Shapes.
There was a strong emphasis on urban chic on the catwalks for A/W15. Gone is the boho/folklore/festival look of summer, this autumn is about looking polished, ladylike and yet undeniably stylish.

On the other hand, Simple shapes captures the more relaxed, fun feel of autumn, where you can take a simple shape, a cardigan or jumper, and experiment with shades, texture and stitches to your heart's content.
