Summary
"For this captivating collection of 15 beautiful patterns, knit designer Mati Ventrillon drew her inspiration from the colourful designs that were created by the women of Fair Isle more than two centuries ago. Mati's original interpretations of the traditional craft have appeared on the Chanel catwalk - and they can appear in your wardrobe, too, and those of your lucky friends. Written for experienced knitters, this vibrant guide features projects that range from contemporary versions of sweaters, scarves, and fingerless gloves to a poncho and traditional fishermen's hats. In addition to her step-by-step instructions, Mari includes expert tips on yarns and finishing along with pointers on experimenting with colours and backgrounds. She also presents the real-life stories of women who knitted Fair Isle masterpieces as well as striking photography that portrays the remote Scottish island where this distinctive craft originated. Knitting from Fair Isle blends the practicality of a how-to book with the allure of a travelogue and a journey of self-discovery"-- Provided by publisher
