We're all really pleased that Rowan have decided to re-release Rowan Magazine 48. It's full of beautiful statement pieces to show off your knitting skills.

The "Nomad" Collection uses felted and roving yarns to keep you nice and cosy. Detailed, chunky cables provide interesting textures in these big, easy-to-wear knits.

"Russian Doll" comprises heavily patterned floral folk, tartans, and stripes. The quirky colour combinations are bang on trend with this seasons fairisle craze.
