You see that Hat on the cover there? That's mine! Yey! 

Tangled River is a new design exclusive to Knit Now magazine. And seeing my Hat on the cover has made me very happy indeed. It's just the tonic for life's recent trials.

Knit Now are a newish British magazine specialising in accessories and smaller knit projects, and I've really enjoyed working with them. Kate, the editor, is very down to earth and approachable, and the magazine content is very well put together and thought through. If you're considering submitting, I say go for it. If you're considering purchasing/subscribing, again I say go for it.

Tangled River was designed with BabyLongLeg's Semi ~ Precious DK which is a dream to work with. The pattern comes in 4 sizes, and includes both charted and written instructions. The twisted stitches travel across the body, intertwining, creating a subtle yet interesting pattern. The style is that of a slouchie beanie, but of the roomy not-quite-a-beret kind, not one that drapes down the back of your neck.

I'm in good company, too. There's a whole bunch of patterns in BabyLongLegs yarn, and a feature with Susan Crawford (I was featured a couple of issues back... I may have failed to have mentioned that) as well as patterns from other designer friends like Elly Doyle. All in all, this issue is one full of friends, which can't be beat.

The rights to this pattern do revert back to me in 4 months, so before then I can't provide you with the pattern. However, if you're unable to get hold of a print copy of the magazine, you can buy the digital issue direct from Knit Now's website.

I've never been great at putting together submission packs for magazines, especially of late (there's always so many other things to do!) but this is one magazine I want to make that extra effort for. It's great, I love it, and it has a very strong following.
