I am really excited to review Filament! This new knit magazine is the brainchild of knit designer Kathleen Dames and designer, yarn dyer and photographer, Anne Podlesak. (If you have bought some of my recent patterns, Anne did the photography!)
Before I talk about the magazine, I thought I would quote what they stated in the intro of the magazine.
In this issue we share our modern take on classic 1930s style, filled with great details and fun-to-knit shapes that we hope will give you many hours of knitting enjoyment this Fall and into the Winter months. The collection features inspiration from some of our favorite movie and cultural references from the 1930s[.]
And that is exactly what they did! First you have to see the photos! If you click on the photos you will go to their official Ravelry Page in a new window.
First I should not that Bonnie and Rumble Seat go to only one of the two patterns shown!
Oh I need to gush a little. This magazine first of all is a beautiful feast for the eyes! If you know me, I am always drawn to shawls and socks first, but every single one of these patterns are gorgeous, and I know I will be making at least one this fall! But which? I cannot decide between Claudette or Bittersweet to be my first project.....
The patterns are well written with clear charts and notes that help you along the way. I love that close ups are included in the patterns, I dont know about you, but I always use them to help me find my way when I am lost!
The book is 32 pages long and with 10 fantastic patterns all professionally edited, charted and graded, the download price of $21 is a steal! And now for a limited time, US purchasers can get the print version for $21 +free shipping. (elsewhere its a a flat rate to ship)
