Rowan Magazine 50 (Pattern Books & Leaflets)
This 50th edition of Rowan magazine marks the 25th anniversary of the publication and brings together timeless classics with modern looks. Wilderness creates a beautiful landscape of gorgeous colour work and complex textures, with both knit and crochet pieces in rich, tweedy yarns. Finesse takes inspiration from the late 50s and early 60s with form-fitting pieces designed to accentuate and flatter soft, feminine curves. Essentials gives the reader a palate of must have 'now' pieces that combine the contemporary and the classic into pieces that will endure the test of time. Articles include an in-depth look at Shetland lace, a retrospective of Rowan's most loyal designers and a snippet on Swedish Quilts.
