I was so lucky to discover these beauties in the charity shop last week.
Dating from 1992 and 2000, they are full of some real treasures. In all honestly I can't see myself making any of the garments from eleven, but they are a fabulous part of modern fashion history. So much colour work and lots of oversizing, goodness me I can't imagine how long some of these pieces would take to knit up!
But twenty seven, though obviously dated, has quite a few pieces I would still love to knit and wear, in the 8 years that passed between the two publications simplicity really took over, there's lots of ribbing, moss stitch and a few tummies on display under the cropped tops!
The thing that is really apparent to me is the quality you expect from Rowan, the gorgeous styling, fabulous photography and stylish garments is forever present.
