'Scottish Heritage Knits' by Martin Storey

 
 
Released date: 7th February 2013
published by: Rowan
ISBN No: 978 1907544385
 
 
Stunning colour combinations breathe new life into traditional colourwork patterns, along with some great cables, in this beautiful new collection of designs from Martin Storey. He offers a great range of projects, jackets, sweaters, cardigans and more, as well as two throws, a cushion and a range of accessories. Inspired by traditional Scottish knit patterns, his designs offer a contemporary twist. For example, he translates the popular Argyll pattern into some singing colour contrasts and then uses a Scottish plaid design as border, while great traditional cable patterns translate into a modern style tunic, a cropped cardigan or a great poncho. Martins great eye for colour is aided and abetted by the exquisite colour palette of some of Rowans most beautiful pure wool yarns in a range of weights, from 4 ply for the finer colourwork to Aran for some of the cables. If you are looking for something special to knit, this is the book you need.
