The Magic of Shetland Lace

Stitches, techniques, and projects for lighter-than-air shawls and more. The ethereal beauty and intricacy of Shetland lace knitting might at first seem beyond the powers of the everyday knitter, but the skills needed are within the reach of everyone who can knit and purl, cast on, and bind off. The Magic of Shetland Lace is designed to take the novice knitter from their first "yarn over" step-by-step to complex every-row lace knitting. Organised by stitch and row count, the techniques are introduced with clear step-by-step instructions, charts, and detailed photographs of knitted samples. The book presents all the essential skills you will need to master a wealth of traditional Shetland motifs, patterns, and insertions, including Cat's Paw, Candlelight, Horse Shoe, and many more. Includes suggestions for how to work different stitches into elegant and traditional Shetland Lace accessories such as scarves, hats, and shawls.

Colours of Shetland by Kate Davies

From Edinburgh writer and designer, Kate Davies, comes a book that brings the creative process of hand-knit design to life in an exciting new way. In Colours of Shetland, Kate takes you on a northern journey, exploring wild and beautiful island landscapes through words, projects and pictures. Situated in the rich context of the Shetland places, wildlife, objects and people that have inspired Kate, each design in this book has its own engaging ‘colour story’ to tell.

Through the pages of this book, you will get a taste of the heritage that makes Shetland one of the world’s most knitterly destinations, and be inspired to knit with yarn that has a genuine connection to the landscape in which it is produced. Showcasing our Jamieson and Smith Jumper Weight, the flagship Shetland yarn with a marvellously varied palette, each project features the clear instructions and attention to detail that are hallmarks of Kate’s designs. Alongside ten original patterns that are a joy to make and wear, Colours of Shetland offers the hand-knitter food for thought and a feast for the eyes.
