Knitscene Winter 2019: A Review

Knitscene has released their Winter 2019 issue. Let's have a look at it, shall we?

Grape Compote Sweater. This one is both practical and attractive, the kind of sweater that's both comfortable enough for both around home and smart enough for going out. Cowls are more universally flattering than turtlenecks, and look, pockets!

Pomegrante Cardigan. The back of this one looks fantastic, but the front has a dumpy, frumpy look. I'd be inclined to fix those drop shoulders, add some waist shaping, and neaten up the fit.

Croissant Sweater. This is a very decent casual look.

Brunch Shawl. Love the edging on this shawl, which turns a simple garter stitch wrap into something much more distinctive.

Earl Gray Hat & Cowl. Classic and wearable cap and cowl set.

Iced Chai Hat. A nice fair isle cap.

Scone Shawl. This is a pleasant little wrap.

Bedhead Beanie. Very cute cap.

Morning Coffee Cowl. Basic cabled cowl.

Rosslyn Cardigan. Nice texture, but this has such a baggy, frumpy look.

Porta Pullover. Love the lace and the overall shaping of this one, but I would neaten up the fit. This is an item that look best oversized, but I'd aim for one size too large, not three or four.

Victoria Station Pullover. Lovely. This is such a refined, classic look.

Downtown Cabled Hat. Classic cabled pom pom hat.

Brisbane Beanie. Some beautiful on texture on this one.

Wellington Pullover. A pretty decent little topper.

Plateau Pullover. Classic pullover. I'd go with a more interesting colour on this one, as it needs a little oomph.

Mitte Tea. Not bad, but this would be one I would wear on its own rather than over a long-sleeved top of some kind.

Loop Hooded Cardigan. This short-sleeved hoodie looks like a versatile and useful little piece. It works surprisingly well over the model's office-appropriate dress.

Central Wrap. Fabulous texture in this one, which makes for such a smart, polished wrap.
