This issue’s knits feature intriguing techniques and stitch patterns. Fall in love with the simplicity of Linen Stitch, featured in the Crisp Morning vest, or relax with the engaging and easy-to-knit lace of the Plumette sweater.

In the articles of issue 19, we meet the Japanese embroidery artist Tomomi Mimura and the Mayan Kaqchikel fibre artist and writer Sari Monroy. We explore the work of an American sheep shearer and find out what kind of skills knitters should practise to increase their brain health.

Laine 19 includes eleven knitting patterns: four sweaters, one cardigan, two vests, one skirt, one shawl, one hat and one pair of socks.

“Issue 19 is a dream for everyone who’s into layering knits! Jennifer Brou’s Kettle Cove vest is the perfect companion to any button-up shirt and Jacqueline van Dillen’s Betula is just the cardigan you can throw over any outfit to look smart and stay warm. This issue feels especially comforting with its soft colours and the tranquil mood of the photos.”
