The cover design on our full-colour October 2022 issue is a chunky jumper for the cooler months ahead. We love self-striping yarn that flows from the cake as we knit. We’ve our usual mix of patterns for men, women and children on standard, LK-150 mid-gauge and chunky machines including a children’s bodywarmer from Anne Baker’s collection of Karabee Designs to keep out the autumn chill. Our Alison Dupernex design this month is a stunning cardigan in one of her signature Fairisle patterns. It’s another inspirational mix of luscious pot-pourri colours. We’ve more narrow edgings in Part 5 of our Show & Tell series and Joan Lafferty proves we’re wrong to ignore tension pieces. Bill King shares some racking tricks to knit some brilliant patterns and the exceptional talent of Susan Guagliumi offers lots of free help and advice. Passap knitters will love our cosy V-neck Jacquard cardigan and Sally-Ann Carroll points us and our knits towards the colours and trends for the new season ahead. Our mail order shop is open and we always have help and advice in Dear Anne plus news, reviews and club details.
