Knitting Traditions Magazine, Fall 2018 Description
Travel to the turn of the century with Knitting Traditions 2018! This issue explores women’s rights movement with projects and articles dedicated to the women who aimed to live on their own terms.
Start your tour with “Worlds Away,” where you’ll cross the globe with Lady Barker, a travel writer, cooking instructor, and sometime sheep farmer. Then knit garments and accessories for all your adventures, from tea in the bush to a woodland hike.
“Art Nouveau” celebrates the more elegant and urbanized side of life. Watch Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Margaret Macdonald create new trends in architecture and décor with their Glasgow Style. Witness Paul Poiret’s reinvention of fashion, and see how childhood experiences shaped the contrasting styles of Coco Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli. Then knit your own homage to these masters of fashion: you’ll find designs for tops, wraps, and even jewelry.
