Festivals, fairs, and fiber! The Mild Weather 2017 issue of Stranded Magazine is all about the fun events that make the knitting community so delightful. In this issue you’ll find an interview on putting together a knitting conference with Sasa Foster, organizer of Seattle’s Knit Fit!, tips on enjoying fiber festivals as an introvert from Faith Parke-Dodge, a recipe to make your own fair scones at home by Jeanne Sauvage, and more.
Seven patterns offer a little bit of everything to keep you cute and comfortable in mild weather. On the cover is a striped pullover by Francesca Hughes, and inside you’ll find a crescent shawl by Renate Siebke, a cropped cardigan by Andi Satterlund, lace socks by Erin Birnel, a seamless cardigan by Cheryl Chow, a colorwork hat by Solene Le Roux, and a geometric wrap by Annika Wolke.
Learn three short-row methods using tutorials by Andi Satterlund, and put them to use with one of the cardigan patterns in the issue. Review the Pattern Prep section to plan a successful project, and flip to the To Knit To section for suggestions from our designers on what to watch, read, or listen to while you craft.
