A Shetlander's Fair Isle Graph Book

In the mid 20th-century, Shetland's professional knitters designed and knitted hundreds of Fair Isle garments each year. The knitting charts reproduced in this book are from two original design books, which include both Fair Isle and Norwegian-inspired motifs. The charts are aimed at the adventurous knitter, who wishes to be inspired by classic, authentic Shetland Fair Isle patterns and colourways.

Shetland Guild of Spinners, Knitters, Weavers and Dyers was formed in 1988. Members meet most months to enjoy and provide craft workshops, share knowledge and explore textile related crafts. Income from the sale of this book will be used by the Guild to continue to promote all aspects of traditional Shetland textile skill.

The book includes an introduction by Dr Carol Christiansen.
