As temperatures cool down, it’s time to dive into new knitting projects! The Mild Weather 2016 issue of Stranded Magazine is here with all of the Pacific-Northwest-inspired knits you’ll need to transition from one season to the next. In this issue you’ll find seven cozy patterns from designers Lee Meredith, Cory Ellen Boberg, Erin Birnel, Ruth Garcia-Alcantud, Andi Satterlund, and Alexa Ludeman and Emily Wessel of Tin Can Knits. It includes everything from sweaters to socks, and you can preview the patterns below.
Be sure to make time to read the great articles and tutorials in the issue. In our Feature, we visited Spincycle Yarns’ studio and spoke with the spinsters about making their yarn in Washington State. Caitlin Ffrench wrote about finding natural dyestuffs locally in the Pacific Northwest. Lee Meredith explains three-needle techniques in her clear knitting tutorials. In the Something Different section, there’s a retro cross stitch pattern based on an Elizabeth Zimmermann quote and accompanying tutorial by Bonnijo Chervenock and a blackberry cake recipe by author Jeanne Sauvage that can be made with or without gluten. At the end of the issue, you’ll find advice on how to knit your best project possible and suggestions from our designers on what to watch, read, or listen to while you knit our patterns.
