Jane Austen Knits Fall 2012, a 144-page special publication from the editors of Spin-Off magazine, explores the fashion and traditions of Jane Austen’s time and novels, through inspired knitting patterns.
This issue offers:
Whether you are an avid knitter, a Janeite, a lover of the Regency era, or all of the above, you will find something to fit your fancy in this magazine.
Jane Austen Knits is organized in sections that play to a balance of opposites that are perfectly paired—just like Miss Elizabeth Bennet and her Mr. Darcy. In these pages, you’ll find something for your every knitting moment. Balance the playful with the serious, morning with evening, country with town, the cultivated with the wild, the manor with the garden. Knit something for your quiet bookworm moments to your social butterfly flitterings. Indulge in your Jane Austen fantasies and make something that you can wear today.
Escape to the country a refreshing walk in the brisk, morning air with these knits. From a warm garter stitch shawl to a light lacey shawl, from delicate mitts to unique socks, these patterns combine function with beauty.
Enjoy quite moments reading a book in your favorite nook or sipping tea with a good friend. Knit tops with feminine details, a masculine colorwork vest, or precious garments for little girls.
Indulge in the beauty and abounding details of the garden, and fulfill your Regency-era fantasies. Make your own military-inspired spencer, don a flowery toque, and embellish a spencer and a stole with alluring details.
Gracefulness, elegance, and femininity make these pieces perfect for evenings out on the town. A flattering chemisette, light wraps, an evening bag, and a ruffled scarf are just some of the patterns that will delight and challenge you.

Two weeks is not long enough to evaluate a knitting magazine,, but this one does seem very well done. I have not tried any of the patterns, but I am pleased with the selection I see here. My problem with all magazines is: there are not enough basic, standard patterns, all seem to have an extra kick that I am not skilled enough to leave out.
