Yarn features a mix of projects, articles, techniques and stories. The projects are predominantly knitwear designs, often with an edgy twist and always shown on a range of figures, rather than perfect-sized, flawless models. There is always at least 1 crochet design and some of the knits feature crocheted finishes.
Every few issues we feature a technique on the creation of art yarn or a project that employs the washing machine to full your knit (or crochet) project into a lovely felted creation, such as brimmed hats, sturdy bags and snuggly boots for warming your tootsies in winter.
The knitwear designs come with comprehensive instructions and a minimum of five sizes. We always include yarn substitution information and measurements in cm and inches. Projects include a mix of lace, cables, slipped stitch designs, Fair Isle, stocking stitch and garter stitch, from easy to technically difficult, to suit a wide range of skill levels.
Technique based articles explain things such as shaping, grading, cast on and cast off methods, backwards knitting, cabling without cable needles, weaving in as you go, creating texture and more.
