Sandra Knit Trends Issue #1 2011

While I have heard of this magazine before, I have never had the opportunity to read it.  So when I saw it in the book store a couple of weeks ago, I got it. I am only finding limited info on this magazine.  It took me a while to find a website for them.  It was hiding in the middle of the magazine on the 7th page of the pattern instructions! I think this is a special issue of Sandra, and is published quarterly. This magazine is printed in Germany, and the international distribution is through Pineapple Media Limited.  You can purchase single issues of Sandra HERE.   You can even subscribe through amazon!   There is also a UK site called Newsstand, where you can purchase the Knit Trends issues.

This issue features both knit and crochet projects for spring and summer.  Full of lacy, feminine projects such as Design #30, Cardigan with Eyelet and Leaf Pattern Scarf, or Design #14 the Mottled Blue-White Pullover, and #58, Lace Pullover in Lilac.

There are also patterns for little boys and girls such as #47, Purple Wave Patterned Pullover (for girls)  Something for everybody in this magazine except men, apparently.

That's it for now.  Until next time, Happy Knitting!


  1. Hello,

    I purchased 2011-#3 issue and I suspect that the pattern (design #48) has an error. Any idea where to search for an errata? I am failing to find the contact info for the publisher :(

    Many thanks!

    1. I also had a hard time finding any info for this magazine. I believe there is a mention of Pineapple Media somewhere within the newspaper-like instruction pages in the middle of the magazine. Or, up under the Magazine tab at the top of the blog, there is a link to subscribe to the magazine - perhaps contact them and they may be able to point you in the right direction.
