Twist Collective is an online knitting magazine, created to showcase the work of knitting designers and writers.
In Twist, you will find thoughtful and innovative design, styling and photography.
It's a great place to browse for inspiration and ideas, as well as find excellent technical advice and how-to's.
Twist uses an innovative business model which sets it apart from newsstand magazines: all the issues (including all past issues) are free to enjoy. The knitting patterns in each issue are available to purchase as instant downloads. Pattern prices range from $5-7.
Designers are paid a generous royalty from each pattern sale; it's a model that promotes a healthy freelance design industry. It means that buying a pattern from Twist means you are directly supporting a freelance designer.
Twist is published three times a year: Spring/Summer, Fall and Winter. Each issue contains about 30 original knitting designs.
Kate Gilbert is the editor in chief of Twist. Kate is a prolific knitting designer herself, you can see her design portfolio on Ravelry.
