Summer is just around the corner! The nine designs in Issue 29 were inspired by ceramic tiles, terracotta, and sand, so expect earthy shades with splashes of colour and organic, repeating patterns. For your summer wardrobe, we have essential tops and tees, a cardigan, a shawl, and a crochet bag – all light and breezy for warmer days.

We’re excited that we’ve finally been able to add extra pages to the magazine. This means more room for the gorgeous photography you love, an increased font size, and a wider range of sizes for some patterns (with the aim for all patterns in future issues).

This issue includes an interview with Emi Ito, who answers our questions on creativity and misappropriation. ‘Learning and Unlearning’ unpicks the issues of cultural appropriation and diversity, important topics we have been reevaluating.

We also have yarn-free projects to enjoy while the sun shines. If you’re on the lookout for a new craft to try, we have a project bag tutorial by artist Arounna Khounnoraj, of Bookhou. She’ll show you how to block-print your own fabric, perfect for creating your own tile-inspired, tessellating patterns! Plus Rebecca Lawrence’s recipe for Maple Bourbon Fudge which whips up easily as an impressive sweet treat to share with friends.

Let those dreamy summer days begin!

    I see myself in this issue. It’s like looking in a mirror and seeing how i’d look wearing the designs. I heart the Earthen sweater: Thanks Pompom for this gorgeous and inspirational issue!

    Love the cardi! Will welcome more pages if it means unlimited access to charts for all sizes for every pattern. I would like to knit Adiantum (Spring 2019) in size 5 or 6. I used the download code to have a look at the charts when the magazine first arrived but didn’t print. Now that I have some yarn I find that I no longer have access to this vital information. Disappointing as I thought I had paid for it! Has anyone else had the same problem? Please would you remedy this for me. Thanks.

      Hi Elizabeth,

      Thanks for your comment, we’re sorry to hear that you’ve had this problem with the code. If you are logged into your Ravelry account when you redeem your download code then it will be stored in your Ravelry library, ready to downloaded again and again. We’ll be in touch via email to solve this for you.
      Happy knitting!
