*LIVING IT LARGE  *(click on title for video presentation)

A new venture for Rowan and not before time. Without exception all Rowan knitting patterns for this new Autumn/Winter season go up to much larger sizes for those who, like us, are on the voluptuous rather than the skeleton luge model of women (and men). If you are up to a 60 inch chest and beyond you will be delighted to see not only larger patterns for all designs, but also more generously sized models in Rowan's gorgeous photography. Well done Rowan, you got there in the end!

Facebook Page (

We have just begun a new facebook page linked to the site and would love to hear from you, news, views, pics of your projects etc. It doesn't have to be Rowan related, we want to provide a comfy space for everyone who has an interest in yarn crafts from beginner to ultimate expert so we can help each other and promote the joy of creativity. We would also love some input from charities who need knitter/crocheters to create articles for sale, and also craftivism groups who are trying to change the world through craft activities. See the foot of this page for the facebook link.

New Books for October 2021.

Two gorgeous new books have reached us, the much anticipated 'Fall' by Kim Hargreaves and 'Indoors' by Erika Knight. Very different offerings, Kim gives us a wide selection of catwalk-aware fashion combined with her craft knitting approach, an approach which has always made her books top-sellers, while Erika Knight has a more boho approach with her collection of 'home comfort' garments, soft furnishings and accessories with a distinct shabby chic vibe. Just go to New Titles in our Design Books drop-down menu to see all the designs..
