Knit'n Style August 2011

Another fabulous issue of Knit'n Style!  Here is my review of Issue #174

Cover Highlights
First Look at Fall Fashions
Knitting with Peruvian Yarns
Art to Wear - The Hexagon Coat
Master Edge Stitches

Some of the goodies on the inside:

Faux Crochet Cardigan by Mary Anne Oger and is knit with Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima (I just received a skein of this yarn from Jimmy Beans Wool this morning, and it is the softest cotton yarn I have ever felt!  I ordered only one skein just for experimental purposes.  I have yet to wind it up, but just smooshing and cuddling the hank I can tell this is a fabulous yarn!)
*This pattern is designed for machine knitting!

Mushishi Textured Wrap featuring Plymouth Yarn Co. Mushishi is a wrap front cardigan featuring a lace panel and gathered neckline on the back, and a deep V-neck and waist tie on the front

Frilly Knit Scarf featuring Red Heart Boutique Sashay - this is a funky, fun yarn that I have never knit with before.  I have some similar yarn that I purchased a couple of years ago at a show, but it is buried deep in my stash.  If you need some help using this yarn, click HERE for a video.

Lots of nice projects in this issue.
