I always find it exciting when another issue of the Knitty magazine is published.   This time I'm once again not disappointed.

If you follow the link, you will see that this issue has something for everyone.  You can choose from one scarf, two shawls, three neck warmers, one headband, one pair of socks, one pair of fingerless mittens and one pair of mittens.   You can also choose from two  jumpers and one cardigan.

The names chosen for the garments were also very attractive to me and the first one that caught my eye was Spinal twist, which you can find here :

This is a neck warmer that looks a bit tricky for someone like me to knit, but I may actually give it a go.     

The hats are also extremely tempting to tackle.  Take for instance 'Head' and 'Braineater' with names like that I am sure I would feel amused while struggling with the yarn floats of the intarsia technique.    

All in all I encourage you to read and support this online magazine which is apparently the longest-running free knitting magazine on the web - please notice that this is not an advert and I don't get anything from promoting Knitty apart from the satisfaction of trying nice free patterns :D

I love Knitty, too. Some of my favorite patterns were published there like the 'Calorimetry' headband.
They often are the first to show new techniques: the cast-on I use for knitting toe-up socks was first in Knitty . So was the elastic bind off I use at the cuff of the socks :)


I remember that head band! I went and found it because it's quite an early one :D and it's good tutorials too, @muscara.

I like the pattern on that cowl and I can see why it would appeal to you. I'm glad you're using @dlike - how do you get on with it?


Funny you should ask that question, @shanibeer. It's fine though I get confused with the tags and 'community'.... Also as I like tweaking things then I tend to edit and re-edit the post only to find all the tags I have to deal with :D (luckily I'm a bit aware of tags from my past life ... )


I know what you mean!

Witty Knitty? lol


Very, @steven-patrick; this issue in particular has a lot of witty names :D

That brain eater hat is fun and I like all the cool patterns! Thanks for sharing!


Yes, I like that hat and the 'head' one too, @jamethiel... I did think of you when I saw the 'brain eater' and wondered whether or not you'd like the gaming reference :D


It is a fun one and I loved the reference. I have never done Fair Isle so it may be an interesting thing to try!
