Knitting from Fair Isle : 15 contemporary designs inspired by tradition, Paperback / softback Book

Knitting from Fair Isle : 15 contemporary designs inspired by tradition Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

'There are a few new [Fair Isle or Shetland lace] knitting books ... but this is the first one to come out this season and has set the bar high.' - Shiny New BooksMati Ventrillon's inspiration comes from the technique of creating patterns with multiple colours that was first used by the women of Fair Isle, one of the Shetland Islands, more than two centuries ago. Her designs, which have featured on the Chanel catwalk, are inspired by tradition but use her own modern interpretation of colour and pattern arrangement.

The book includes fisherman jumpers with high, crew and slash necks, a poncho, neck warmer, cowl and long scarf, fingerless gloves and hand and wrist warmers, as well as the traditional fisherman's hats known as keps. The patterns demonstrate how to experiment with colour and play with backgrounds.

They are accompanied by expert tips on yarns and finishing.
