Issue 38's theme is 2021 collection celebrates trees: their roots, branches, and everything in-between! In our 38th issue, you can look forward to luscious cable patterns which mimic labyrinths of roots and statuesque boughs, clever colourwork and textures designed to imitate oft-overlooked plantlife, and patterns which reference the enchanted forests of fairy tales. Autumn is a transitional season, so alongside trusty pullovers and cardigans, you’ll find accessories which are perfect for furling in your coat pocket or rucksack for when the weather takes a chilly turn.
Burrow down into Issue 38 and you’ll find two articles, a tutorial, and a recipe in addition to nine knit and crochet patterns! Dawn Henderson invites us to introduce magick into our handicrafts by sharing her experiences of Hoodoo (or African American rootwork). Drawing on her expertise in microplastics, Tereza Pavlíková raises important questions about the textile industry and pollution, and Caitlin Ffrench demonstrates how you can make charcoal and ink from dried plant material! Issue 38’s knit and crochet garments will keep you toasty from the outside, but Fi Churchman’s ginger pudding recipe will warm you from within!
