According to the Knip site, there will be a new series of Knipmode XL (plus-size) magazines next year. Dutch site - English translation. There will be four issues with the first one coming out along with the regular February issue in January.

One problem, though - according to them they will not be sold in shops and only available via subscription - and only to those who already have a regular Knipmode subscription. It's 20 euros extra on top of your subscription, if you have one, and you can't subscribe to the XL issues only. (If you take a look at the comments below the post, many people are aggravated and pointing out how little sense this makes, so perhaps they will change their mind, but somehow I doubt it.)

Ahh thanks for the explanation! I saw the ad in the December knipmode but I can only get the barest meaning as my Dutch is very poor!

I must say, this approach makes absolutely no sense to me. This combined with the blah quality of the last six months has made me definitely reconsider my subscription. 2010 was an AMAZING year for knipmode, but since this new editor took over, I've really seen the quality of patterns go downhill. I hope it's just teething troubles and they can turn it around over there.

Hey, without Google translate, I'd be SOL. :)

I agree about the quality going downhill - I don't have a subscription and wait until I see the pics to buy, and I haven't bothered to order any issues since the summer. I am thinking about December, which looks a bit better, but it's not awesome enough to immediately get me to order. I love my old XLs, and I will definitely try to get my hands on the new ones if they are anywhere near as good, but they may be just as blah as the regular Knip right now.

They do seem to have a discount deal going right now if you resubscribe including the XL issues, based on that webpage, but I don't know if that also applies to international subscriptions.
