By Hand No 12, London


In Issue #12 of By Hand Serial, we take you on a hands-on, experiential trip to London. Lookbook #12 is full of shops to visit, workshops and classes to take, and outings and day trips to experience. Take a baking class at Bread Ahead, indulge all of your fabric fantasies and learn how to sew with the experts at Merchant and Mills, and observe the fundamentals of natural dying in the working studio of Botanical Inks. Peek into the fabric store houses of Liberty London and Cloth House. Stretch your legs and savor the sights and scents in London's Kew Gardens, then hop a train and take a day trip to Brighton Beach or the medieval village of Rye. Logbook #12 is a maker's travelogue, and we invite you to use it to craft your own fiber and fabric trip of a lifetime!

The patterns and projects in By Hand Serial Lookbook #12 are the perfect opportunity to stretch your wings a little and try your hand at something new. All of the projects are both beautiful and functional: an opportunity to make simple, classic pieces that will become core staples in your wardrobe. Patterns from Andrea Hungerford and Hannah Thiessen include a quilted vest sewn from jacquard cotton; a classic knitted turtleneck to wear alone or as the perfect layering piece; and a lightweight cardigan with carefully crafted details and a soft mohair halo will carry you from spring into summer. Knitting patterns also include a clever colorwork vest by Silvia Watts-Cherry, and a hat and scarf set with striking cables by Irina Pi. Sew a flattering lounge set in one Liberty London's vibrant floral prints, and try your hand at natural dyeing with small pieces of fabric that you can sew into a handy dumpling drawstring pouch. We have even included a recipe direct from Bread Ahead's English Teatime baking class!
