"When you do peruse knitting patterns, try to train yourself to look at the clothes, not the model or the setting. Knitting publications that have bigger production budgets spend more on photography, stylists, and models. This can add up to distracting accessories and unintentionally misleading poses."
I can't help but point out that the cover shot of the issue in question employed a professional model, photographer, and make-up artist. I'm not saying it's a bad thing... maybe I'm just saying it's distracting, something I expect to find in Vogue Knitting, or a bit out of Knitty character. Then again, I no longer understand the character of "Knitty."
However, I do not exclude that the designer of the pattern was responsible for orchestrating this "look," not Knitty itself. Anyone know?
