This issue celebrates our 25th birthday and we’ve chosen Anne Baker’s garter carriage design for our cover. We’ve nine designs (with 16 patterns) for standard gauge, LK150 and SK860 mid gauge machines and chunky models. Carl Boyd brings us step-by-step instructions for adding a pretty finishing touch to our knitting and our Editor Anne tells us all about her career in machine knitting. There’s Clubline, Dear Anne, Style File and Joan Lafferty reminds us that knitting today is no different to 25 years ago. Alice Wilmshurst shows Passap knitters how to love the Deco and shares a cheerful pram cover pattern in Stash Box. Bill King turns his attention to neat pleats in Masterclass and it’s time to knit fancy raglans with Beryl Jarvis in Part 24 of her major series. Our regular features also include Newsline and Book Review.
