Twist Collective

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.
