I like Vogue Knitting the most so far...I bought the fall Interweave Knits and didn't find anything I like too much in there - browsed through the winter issue at the store and felt the same way. I find that a lot of their knits look extremely unflattering - the pattern will say smth like "sweater shown is 32" chest circumference," so the model is obviously very thin, and yet she looks like she's got 30 extra pounds on her. A lot of their patterns (in the last 2 issues, anyway) are kind of boxy.
Knit.1 is like VK on crack....most of that stuff is not wearable, even though it may look attractive.
I'm not into "Simple Knits" or anything like that, because I'm more interested in challenging patterns - I get really bored whenever I'm knitting very simple things.
I agree. I like Vogue Knitting the best. And I even like Knit.1 because the patterns are inspiring to me. But Vogue Knitting is the best in my opinion. This question is going to illicit a lot of different answers though because the knitting mags definitely appeal to different people based on their own personal style, you know?
