An exciting addition to the 2022 Annual is the inclusion of our Shetland Heritage Patterns: working with the Unst Heritage Centre, Shetland Museum and Donna Smith, we have revived and reinterpreted two distinctly different vintage garments for today’s knitter. We also have two articles to accompany each of these patterns.
We have transitional pieces that can be layered; cosy accessories to snuggle into and lighter items that will be a pleasure to make and wear. We also have something for all those dog lovers, too! There is a good balance of projects from stash busting ideas which include smaller accessories through to bigger, more challenging knits.
Patterns: There are 13 patterns from leading Shetland knitwear designers. Expect vibrant Fair Isle motifs and patterns, subtle, intricate lace, weaving and more.
