Knitting: Cardigan
“This nautical-inspired cardigan has side shaping and bust darts to give a sleek silhouette, and features lace trim and beading to emphasise the “port holes” on the sleeves,” says Judy Furlong. “The front edges and neckline are finished with an enclosed trim to give a neat look if the cardigan is to be worn unbutton...

Knitting: Cardigan
Close fitting cardigan, featured on the front cover of The Knitter, Issue 94, has fairly simple lace stitch pattern and stocking stitch, but do take care with Milanese stitch.

Knitting: Cardigan
An easy to wear kimono style cardigan. The stitch patterns for the main sections are reasonably easy as they are both purl on the wrong side, but do take care with the bead stitch front panel. Unlike the other two stitch patterns, the lace is worked on all rows which makes it a little tricky to unpick a mistake. If you are a novice at lace knitt...

Knitting: Pillow / Cushion
It is hard not to be inspired by the traditional Scottish patterns of Fair Isle, tartan and Sanquhar hence this cushion, showing all three bound together in a celtic plait and finished off with stag’s horn buttons recycled from an old kilt jacket – hence this cushion’s alternative name, Monarch of the Glen. Techniques are cabling for the c...
Knitting: Coat / Jacket
Single breasted, asymmetric fastening, long sleeved coat inspired by traditional Sanquhar patterns.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This floaty stole can be transformed by the way you wear it. With the longer edge at the bottom it appears to be a traditional crescent shawl. But wear it the other way up and the deep edging becomes the collar for a bolero-shaped wrap, which can be pinned in place. There are little loops at the upper border front edge for buttonholes, too.

Knitting: Pullover
Traditionally, ganseys are knitted ‘in the round’. This pattern featuring many traditional stitches, is written for flat knitting, except for the neckband, but looks as though it has been knitted ‘in the round’ if invisible seaming is used and if the two halves of both gussets are joined by grafting. If the knitter prefers not to graft, then sim...
