  • Laine's beautiful autumn issue is here! In Laine 18 (called Weekend Getaway) we take time to relax in a little cottage by the forest. The versatile and comfortable knits are suited for both indoors and outdoors, and they are the perfect addition to your wardrobe as the days get colder.

    Issue 18, Autumn 2023, includes:

    • 11 knitting patterns (both charts and written instructions provided): 5 sweaters, 2 cardigans, 1 slipover, 1 shawl, 1 hat and 1 pair of mittens.

    • An interview with the American knitwear designer and fashion historian Sydney Crabaugh, who specialises in vintage knits and runs her own virtual knitting school.

    • An article about Shetland and its knitting traditions, with two inspiring designers — Gudrun Johnston and Mary Jane Mucklestone — as our guides.

    • Jeanette Sloan’s Fibre Talk: a regular article on Jeanette chatting with interesting people. In this issue, she meets Tanis “Akutuq” Simpson, whose company produces yarn from qiviut: a fibre that comes from the under­coat of the muskox.

    • Five Ways by our regular writer Päivi Kankaro, who gathers experts’ tips on mending your knits.

    • Where I Knit: a regular piece that pictures people knitting in their favourite spot. In this issue, we meet Nora, who likes to knit on the rooftop of her home in Cologne, Germany.

    • Seasonal recipes to inspire your autumn cooking.

    • Book reviews

    Designers featured in this issue: Jenny Ansah, Marcela Chang, Melissa Clulow, Emma Ducher, Jenna Kostet, Ksenia Naidyon, Olga Putano, Tiia Reho, Anna Sjösvärd and Julia Wilkens.

    Jenny Ansah — Horsma

    Featuring bobbles and lace, while the cuff of the mittens and the brim of the beanie are worked in twisted ribbing. Both accessories are knitted with two yarns held together.

    Yarn 1:
    Pudding by Mrs Moon
    Andorra by Kelbourne Woolens
    Merino Cloud by artyarns
    Road to China Light by The Fibre Co
    Opus by Walcot 

    Yarn 2:
    One of our Lace Weight Silk Mo yarns

    Marcela Chang — Otoño

    Worsted-weight sweater, worked in an all-over colourwork pattern that is fun and fast to knit. Otoño is worked from the top down seamlessly, and short rows are worked at the back for a better fit. The design is very versatile: you can knit the sweater in two or multiple colours.

    The Croft by WYS
    Spiral Grain Light Worsted by Urth Yarns
    Origin by Walcot
    Feli by Illimani
    Sweater Yarn by Blue Sky Fibres

    Melissa Clulow — Turtle Dove

    Soft and light, the cardigan is knitted holding two strands of mohair with a strand of woolly, non-superwash yarn. This top-down cardigan is the perfect companion over jeans and a tee, a dress, or even pyjamas for weekend lounging!

    Yarn 1:
    Le Petit Lambswool by Biches & Buches
    Le Cashmere & Lambswoolby Biches & Buches
    Woolstok Light by Blue Sky Fibres
    Merino Cloud by artyarns
    Supersoft by Holst
    Amble by The Fibre Co

    Yarn 2:
    One of our Lace Weight Silk Mo yarns

    Emma Ducher — Orée

    Orée is a loose-fitting, comfortable sweater for autumn: chic but still practical to wear outdoors. It has a high turtleneck collar, and for an elegant shape, the front of the sweater is worked shorter than the back. 

    The sample here is knit with 2 yarns held together. One is a Lace Weight Silk Mo, the other a "worsted" weight.

    We think this sweater would be perfect knit with only one thread of Woolstok Worsted by Blue Sky Fibres, or Le Gros Silk & Mohair by Biches & Buches.

    If you'd like a yarn which you could hold with a thread of SIlk Mohair, we recommend one of these:
    Santi by Illimani
    Plump DK by Mrs Moon
    Clinton Hill Bespoke DK Cashmere
    Scout by Kelbourne Woolens
    Socks Yeah DK by Coopknits

    Jenna Kostet — Himmeli

    The airy colourwork pattern gives Himmeli a contrast with conventional multi-coloured yoke sweaters.

    Woolstok Worsted

    Spiral Grain Light Worsted by Urth Yarns
    Feli by Illimani
    Brushed Suri by Blue Sky Fibres

    Ksenia Naidyon — Barberry

    Barberry is a generously sized scarf full of texture. It features cables, moss stitch, Japanese wrapped stitches and simple lace. Try the scarf on as you go to see which length works best for you — the pattern is easy to adjust.

    Lore by The Fibre Co
    Socks Yeah DK by Coopknits
    Clinton Hill Bespoke DK Cashmere
    Jenson by Isager
    The Croft Shetland DK by WYS

    Olga Putano — Saunseray

    Saunseray is a roomy, drop-shoulder sweater knitted bottom up, in the round and flat. The sleeves are picked up and worked from the top down. The sweater is full of easy-to-execute cables, which provide an engaging yet relaxing knitting experience.

    Lalland DK by Di Gilpin
    Road to China Light by The Fibre Co
    Eco Melange by Isager
    Metalico by Blue Sky Fibres
    Santi by Illimani

    Tiia Reho — Helli

    Helli is an elegant yet simple slipover, worked in a combination of wool and silk mohair. It features an easy but eye-catching combination of Stockinette Stitch and Moss Stitch. The body of the slipover is straight with some positive ease at the chest. Helli is a soft and feminine pattern with some masculine elements, such as the shoulders. These contrasts make the garment interesting.

    Yarn 1:
    Woolstok Light by Blue Sky Fibres
    Le Petit Lambswool
     by Biches & Buches
    Supersoft by Holst
    Merilin by Isager
    Organic Soft Merino by KAOS
    16 Fingering by Urth

    Yarn 2:
    One of our Lace Weight Silk Mo yarns

    Anna Sjösvärd — Huldra

    Huldra is a cosy raglan sweater with stranded knitting. The sweater has floats all over, which adds warmth and fullness. The jumper comes in two versions, normal length and cropped.

    Woolstok WorstedManchelopi by Wooldreamers (we love the idea of thrumming with this yarn too!)
    Spiral Grain Light Worsted by Urth Yarns
    Madara by Noro
    Feli by Illimani
    E+2 by Einrum

    Julia Wilkens — Preppy

    The Preppy pattern is a relaxed cardigan based on the classic varsity jacket. Preppy is knitted seamlessly from the top down, and the sleeves and body are worked at the same time in two different colours. This application of intarsia is at the same time logical and unusual.

    Yarn 1:
    Feli by Illimani
    Brushed Suri by Blue Sky Fibres
    Amelie by Illimani
    L+2 by Einrum

    Yarn 2 (cuffs):

    16 Fingering by Urth
    Merino Cloud by artyarns
    E+2 by Einrum
