As a knitting addict I buy a lot of knitting magazines. Knitting is my favourite. It's pitched at a readership that knows what its doing and whilst beginners can enjoy competent knitters can get more out of it.
It's recently changed to a larger format which means pictures are clear and you can easily see charts clearly. It has a wide range of patterns to suit all, always classy. The feel and look of the magazine is sophisticated and it doesn't talk down to its readers.
Unlike some other knitting titles available on the market its articles and feature are in depth and interesting, featuring thinks like a review of knitting in London Fashion Week or the new graduates that have done hand knit shows. It also looks at things like the history of knitting techniques such as Gansey knitting or Fair Isle. It also isn't afraid to tackle tricky techniques in depth like cutting steeks which fills all novice knitters with dread. I t also has the usual lists of stockists and a good question and answer column for knitting problems.
Laura "Purl Princess" Parkinson writes a brilliant column in the back about her knitting life that's always a good read as well.
Lovely pictures and style. Excellent patterns range with some commissioned by designers such as Debbie Bliss. Great Free pattern magazines from companies like Rowan. Interesting articles. The "Purl about Town" column.
None for me really though it may be a bit confusing for absolute beginners.
