Magknits Pattern Archives

I was trying to find a Magknits pattern earlier today via Google Cache but I couldn't. I did eventually find what I wanted via '' where a copy of each issue of Magknits up to August 2007 has been saved. Here's how it works:

Go to and type in the search box.

The search results will literally be a list of dates that are displayed in a table. It doesn't look like much but by clicking on one of the dates you will be redirected to an archived copy of that issue of Magknits.

Unless you want to visit each issue of Magknits that has been archived, try to find the publication date of the pattern you're looking for. You can do this by doing a Google search for Magknits [+pattern-name].

Once you have the publication date, go back to and click on the date in the table. This will redirect you to an archived copy of that issue of Magknits.

From there you simply click on the Pattern button in the header to see the patterns for that issue. I haven't checked every single issue, but what I've seen so far looks just like it did when the magazine was live.

NB You won't be able to navigate from one issue of Magknits to the next in the archive. You will have to access each issue via

There may be a quicker way out there to find an archived copy of a particular pattern or issue, as each web page that is published has its own unique address or URL and if I find one I'll share it.
