This is the first edition of thw Rowan Journal that was sent to members of Rowan International. It was published in 1989 and so is 27 years old!.
It contains two patterns : a cardigan by Kim Hargreaves and a fair isle sweater by Jean Moss.
There is an interview with a very young looking Kaffe Fassett,, articles on how yarn is dyed, a visit to Wales to see where designer Carrie White gets her inspiration from and there are reviews of new books and Rowan workshops.
This journal is a piece of Rowan's history and will be of great interest to anyone who collects Rowan books.
This copy is as new and comes with loose leaflets advertising an evening with Kaffe Fassett and details of kits for the 2 patterns in the journal.
