With great respect,
i am really new to knitting (I mostly crochet) and really and jumping in with both feet. So anything for a challenging beginner would be great.
I’m always interested in free patterns, but love the seasonal ideas under “Design” and the “Shops and Happenings” also!
Looking forward to this magazine. I absolutely love your yarn. The Plymouth Select Worsted Merino is on my needles now. It is so very soft and my grandson will love his sweater and matching blanket buddy. I’m looking forward to seeing other patterns using this yarn.
Congratulations on the magazine. I would like to see a sock pattern!
How exciting! I’m looking forward to learning about all of your yarns!
How Exciting! One of the topics I’d like to see is ideas for substituting/interchanging various Plymouth yarns in popular patterns on Ravelry..
I would love to see topics in the future regarding new and upcoming yarns/colors, more how to tutorials using different knitting techniques and interviews with pattern designers.
Please publish the history o plymouth yarns. Also, how do I het your magazine sent to my email? Thank You
Patterns, charity knitting, knitting groups, LYS, Yarn. Great idea! Encore is my go to yarn.
I would like to see an article about those techniques and/or projects that knitters avoid. Double pointed needles, intricate patterns, socks, etc. What are others’ ideas for getting over those obstacles?
I love to see the patterns to use with the yarns you have. I also like learning and using new techniques, like three needle bind-offs and different techniques like lace work.
I’m so excited!! Love your patterns and inspiration!! Got my fingers crossed for the lovely setasilk cardigan kit!! Thanks for the chance!
How can I subscribe to the magazine? I’m looking here and can’t seem to figure it out
Take a look at the header with our social media icons, the one in between the camera (instagram) and the square with the arrow (youtube) is the one you would click to subscribe to the feed. I hope this helps!
Love the magazine, I always like to see features on little yarns shops myself, but think you pretty much have things covered!
I love seeing examples knit in new yarns. Would love to read about the yarn shops that carry Plymouth yarns.
Looking forward to the magazine! I would like to see a section of helpful tips each issue. Ideas that maybe readers send in. There are always good ideas out there that we don’t think of on own.
Love free patterns! Love info about local shops! Love Plymouth Yarn!
Am a big Plymouth fan! Looking forward to more issues!
Your yarns are my go to favorites! Encore is the best all around worsted, love happy feet for socks and am looking forward to using cakes! Quality, quantity and price are all win-win for me!
I would like to see new techniques. Any patterns using your yarn I would be interested in
I love Plymouth yarn no stores near me sell it though
These patterns look like such fun! So inspiring. And the magazine looks like it would be full of information I need to learn so that I can keep up with the latest trends.
Plymouth encore yarn was the first yarn I purchased when I retired 7 years ago and returned to knitting. I was rusty and this choice of yarn made up sucessful items from the start. The free pattern had explanations of the design and all the “how to” information. The little shop nearby was brimming with vibrant colors by Plymouth and I worked my way through the different fibers they offer. Thanks Plymouth for your new magazine and more adventure in my life! Even when I was hospitalized, my yarn came with me and the time passed quickly. How about that!
Love Plymouth yarns. I love knitting almost anything, but I really enjoy knitting shawls.
I would love to see more kits that include the pattern and yarns selected for us non color coordinated people.
Looking forward to your magazine
Love knitting and like seen my new techniques to make me a better knitter and look forward to your magazine to find great new patterns and ideas
I love the descriptions and small articles about the new yarns and the patterns suggested for them. Always look forward to something new from Plymouth.
New and old baby sweater patterns using encore DK.
My LYS carries a lot of your yarn. So this will be a great addition. Thank you
Would love to see knit patterns for beginner/advanced beginner, and easy knit patterns that would be good for gifts, as well as new notions for knitters.
Plymouth yarn is one of my favorite brands so I’d like to see a second of ideas of using your yarns with current patterns.
It would also be nice to have a page with concise information on techniques that are straightforward and to the point.
Loved this yarn for years. I knit and crochet both. It’s the passion that keeps me sane. With limited time I love quick and easy patterns best. The new asymmetrical shawl with Hot Cakes is the perfect project right now.
Looking forward to new ideas.
I would like to see more men’s knits….sweaters, socks etc… Also would love to have an area that is focused on education about the different types of yarn, how they are processed, what that even means ..lol..thank you!
Welcome to the new digital magazine. I love the format. I like your wide variety of yarns. I’d like to see some retro patterns.
Facebook page indicates a giveaway, so I’m adding my comment here… Love Plymouth yarns. I find myself coming back to them time and again for value and great looks! Happy to see this new venture and look forward to future issues!
Very nice …. I love the photos of finished items. Please don’t forget those of us who crochet!
I absolutely love Plymouth yarn. A fantastic value and lovely yarn ❤️
I would love to see a LYS list, a feature on a LYS, and the latest trends in yarn and patterns
Crocheter looking to learn the Continental method. Any tutorials on that method would be greatly appreciated.
Would like to see double knitting explained in your new magazine.
I am new to crochet and really new to knitting, I’m looking at learning more techniques/ stitches and more about different yarns.

I loved to see patterns for practical knitwear for an “average person” (not high fashion or exotic). And it would be great to see more stashbusters for those odds and ends of beautiful yarn too wonderful to get rid of. Congratulations on your new magazine!
I’d love to hear about beginner knits in gun colors.
Give us a call in the office and we can help you try yo find one or at least find you a mail order source.
I have stalked many knitting/yarn webs, but often come away heartbroken. There are only a handful of real women’s sizes. We BBW are almost always having to do the math, which, I don’t mind, but there are some beautiful patterns out there and they consider XL a 14/16. That’s my request, but here is the glory, the yarns are GORGEOUS
I love Plymouth yarn. I’m knitting a baby blanket with Encore right now and have a crochet pattern for Anna on deck as my next project. Excited about you new magazine. 🙂
Feeling a bit of discrimination here. I crochet, therefore this isn’t for me I guess. Bet I’m not alone in that feeling.
Ooh how wonderful to see a magazine from a favorite yarn supplier!
Goodness, how about patterns with more color work in DK weight, sweaters, roving for spinners, and perhaps features on where the fibers come from? Farms, ranches, isles of sheep, and cotton?
Love the colors of the hot cakes!! I need to get me some. Love your easy patterns for beginners!! Thanks so much!
So exciting. I look forward to new fresh ideas. I am mostly a sock and shawl knitter, but would love to knit a sweater. What might I like to see in a magazine..easy to understand instructions on using beads in knitting, How to read a chart, articles for people who knit left handed, yes there are many of us….my list could go in a while so i will stop at those.
I would love to see some articles on brioche knitting. Congrats on your new magazine…looking forward to reading it!
Love Plymouth yarn..would love kids patterns and socks.
We have lots of crochet! Our featured pattern you’ll see on the home page is a Pop Mix vest, #3206 is crocheted and available at your local yarn shop. There is also a free pattern on our website in our new and super popular Hot Cakes, #F830, it’s a crochet V-Stitch Cowl. You can find more by going to our website and selecting “crochet” in the pattern type.
Check out our new designs from Meghan Jones, she is fabulous and designs for all sizes, big and small. You can see them on our website. They are numbers M100-M106 (with more on the way)and available at your local yarn shop.
I love kits with multiple colorways to choose from!
I love Plymouth yarn and it’s reasonable prices. I would like to see patterns that travel well while making. I am in the car a lot but not drivimg.
I work in a yarn shop and one of the things people always ask about is how to substitute yarns in patterns. Will be excited to see what you guys publish!
I love plymouth yarn…bought some today for a baby blanket! Interested in all knitting topics. Have yet to learn intarsia.
Surprise! New magazine is a joy. I love hearing new techniques and esp those that help with hand issues. And always new yarns!
Articles featuring local yarn shops would be great!
This is wonderful! I really believe that crochet is coming into its own with exciting patterns so I hope to see more of that in your new magazine! I have knitted for years but as I age I find crocheting easier. Thanks for sharing your news.
Congrats on new magazine. Seeing the same pattern done in different Plymouth yarns would be interesting, as would patterns with multiple gauge/yarn options.
Delighted! Congrats. I have followed you for yeats. My intrest is shawls with sock yarn, fingering yarn etc. I have soent hours enjoying knitting these.
I like to knit prayer shawl from encore. I like new patterns to try.
I would love to read about different ways to finish pieces – blocking, adding design elements like top stitching, the best way to weave in ends, etc.
I would like to see accessory patterns!
Love your yarns. .am looking forward to seeing what can be created by your staff. And all the jibber jabber everyone is gonna post. I knit mostly, crochet also, my 11 year old granddaughter decided she wanted me to teach her to crochet and she’s a master already, also knits. All my DILS KNIT, SO does my one son
It will be so nice to have a magazine listing Plymouth’s beautiful yarns along with pattern suggestions. Look forward to having one.
I would like to see information on how to fix mistakes in knitting and helpful tried and true tips and tricks.
I am trying my hand at socks. I would love to learn how to knit them tie up!
Oops! TOE up.
I love your yarns and I’d likecto see modern updates to vintage patterns from the 30’s, 40′ and 50’s. Just something about how those styles fit and the silhouettes were amazing. Im ooking forward to seeing lots of fun stuff tegardless!
Swatches would be nice to show variegated and self striping color ways plus new tools.
I would love to see patterns that are boho and trendy. I love making shawls and wraps, but would love to make socks.
Ohh how exciting! Definitely love to see seasonal patterns, maybe something to break a no-longer-beginner but still apprehensive knitter into bigger projects!
Whoo whoo… I can’t wait to show this magazine to my fellow knitters/ crotch people.
So many wonderful projects to tempt me. Thanks!
I am addicted to fibers which feeds my knitting addiction Looking forward to this new magazine
I would like to see the yarn knitted in small projects so I could see how the colors pooled or striped.
A good mix between knit and crochet (and crocheted garments, not just afghans and pot holders!), technique tutorials for both, feature a specific Plymouth yarn in each issue with patterns for both knit and crochet in that yarn. Hints and helps. Perhaps highlight a store each issue that carries your yarn and show some items customers have made (of course with Plymouth yarns).
Good luck with your magazine! I look forward to reading it.
I am wanting to knit again and have forgotten how so to start again I will need refreshers and i need some fun beginner patterns that work up quickly. Thanks so much! 😀
Really looking forward to this. Love Plymouth. But would like to see crochet added in as yarn isn’t just for knitting.
The magazine and yarn looks so yummy. I would love to see this on my doorstep. ❤️
I’ve adored Plymouth Yarn for years, I would love to see tips on teaching children to knit and crochet
I would like a subscription please. I will be looking for little girl summer clothing patterns, sizes 5-12, for my granddaughters.
How about a feature on what people are knitting in different parts of the country? What patterns are most popular in Minneapolis, or which of your yarns play well in Miami, for example.
Love the spring colors of Setasilk. Would like to see kit options.
I would love to receive your magazine. I’m a long time knitter and crocheter. I’m always looking for a new/different pattern to make things for my kids and grandkids!
I Love your yarns! Encore is only one of my favs! I Love to knits for my grandchildren! Hopeing to see great kid patterns!! Looking forward to your new magizine!
Yay! Excited for this. I’d love a guide on which yarns are best for which products. I’m always wondering if certain fibers are better for blankets or clothing or anything else I knit. What keeps its shape? What doesn’t pill? What is truly truly machine washable? Love your yarns!
I like your new magazine’s digital format! I am glad to see that you have a good balance between informative articles to read and things to make (knit, in my case). What I would like to see is the same pattern knit in several of your yarns that are the same weight category but different fibers. Thanks for the giveaway contest!
Brioche is new to me so I would love to hear more about its history, including photos of early pieces. Thanks for this. Just can’t get enough info on knitting.
This magazine is a great idea! Plymouth yarns are a good value & I am looking forward to learning more about them. I love articles about an LYS & its owner and also articles about designers.
Wonderful! I love ❤️ Plymouth Yarn. And Plymouth Patterns as well. It would be great if you featured a pattern and then spoke of different yarns and colourways for it. Maybe a detail about so,e tricky bit (like the sleeves or neck). Keep on.
