Rowan Spring

Take a trip to Morocco and tour an ancient Kasbah in Rowan's Kasbah Collection. Visit a tropical garden in Marrakech in the Bamboo Tape Collection. Travel through the Moroccan Soukhs and bazaars in Rowan Magazine 41. In Rowan Studio, Issue Two, find a contemporary reappraisal of classic knitting with designs inspired by the season's hottest trends.

Lotus by Stitch Diva
Stitch Diva's Lotus Smock is a fast and easy project using crochet hairpin lace. The top-down, try-on-as-you-go dress will work up in a week; the camisole in a weekend. Create the Lotus Smock by joining hairpin lace strips of different lengths into a classic feather and fan pattern that hugs your curves. Stitch Diva offers a wonderful tutorial on hairpin lace technique. Create the design with a Jenkins Hairpin Lace Loom. Ed Jenkins creates heirloom quality looms in exotic woods including Walnut, Canary and Purpleheart.

The Lotus Smock is featured in Tilli Tomas Soie de la Mer. This incredible yarn is 60% silk and 40% SeaCell, a cellulose-based fiber made from seaweed. It is said that when SeaCell is worn, the skin's natural moisture will cause the seaweed to release calcium, magnesium and vitamin E, providing anti-inflammatory properties that have been shown to protect the skin. Try this “silk of the sea” for beauty, health, and style.
