Fall 2017 Collector’s Issue marks the 35th anniversary of Vogue Knitting Magazine. In 1982, Vogue Knitting was reinstated after a long hiatus – not much interest in hand knitting in the 1960s and 70s. Vogue has always been the pulse of what’s new for the season, and fresh relative to the time period. They have managed to remain relevant and adapt to the needs of the modern knitter.
From the premier issue of 1982, my fave was “Playful Proportioning”; five easy layering pieces. Updated in new yarns, these pieces could easily be worn today.
My favorite from the 35th Collector’s Issue is this ruffled sweater (Design #23). Ruffles have continued to be one of the key trends for 2017.
I hope to enjoy Vogue Knitting for years to come!
