I’ve just had another pattern published in the latest issue of Yarn Forward, issue no. 15. I just love the color of this yarn (Rowan summer tweed) – ‘Mango’. I had a hard time giving this top up to the magazine! It is a little less fitted than a lot of styles I design and it was really easy to wear. There are slits at the sides of the hem with small twisted stitches in the ribbing at the waist. I can see this being a top that would get a lot of use in the summer evenings.
You can see a preview of this issue here. For anyone who can’t easily get a hardcopy of the magazine I believe that the will have the digital version up again in the near future. The last digital provider that they were using went under a few weeks ago.
I haven’t seen a copy of this magazine yet but I believe a photo tutorial of the crochet cast-on that I did for them was in this issue. It’s one of my favorite provisional cast-ons. It is easy to do and you can clearly see the stitches when you remove the crochet chain afterwards. (Plus as an added bonus all of your stitches are in the right direction!)
