175 pp, 11 5/8" H. Profusely illustrated in colour and b&w. "Richly textured Aran knits and colorful Fair Isle designs are two of the most popular traditional knitting styles. This comprehensive sourcebook provides knitters with both the inspiration and the know-how to create items to be worn and treasured for years. Discover the origins of these unique knitting traditions, how islanders' livelihoods resulted in designs that are now well recognized the world over. This guide features a wide range of Aran cables, bobbles, and twists, among others, as well as Fair Isle patterns - almost 400 stitches. Each stitch entry includes a color illustration of the finished stitch, step-by-step instructions, and a stitch chart. Instructions are straightforward; both beginners and experienced knitters will find them easy to follow. Although these stitches can be combined in countless ways in a variety of patterns, this book includes patterns for timeless classics. The Aran knit patterns include a woman's cabled sweaters, his and hers cabled sweaters, as well as hats and mittens for women and children. And a woman's sweater, a man's sweater, and hat and gloves are among the Fair Isle patterns." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very light edge wear, light rubbing, small crease at corners of front cover, a few small soft creases on covers, book slightly cocked, light waviness to edges of text block.
