  1. Meadow


    Marie Wallin

    From Marie Wallin: "MEADOW is a collection of seven beautiful Fair Isle and textured stitch designs inspired by the romantic and peaceful landscapes of Britain's spring meadows. The designs in the MEADOW collection are largely inspired by traditional Fair Isle patterns and ornamental design. Many of the shapes are more contemporary in look and styling with some of them being easy to change to a different colour, if so desired." Designs use Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift wool. 2019. Softcover. $36.95

Chapter 12 provides full details for you to knit nine different garments: from classic pullovers to the stunning tunic/dress shown at left. Hardcover. Learn More
  3. Norah Gaughan's Knitted Cable Sourcebook

    A Breakthrough Guide to Knitting with Cables and Designing Your Own. I have admired Norah Gaughan's designs for decades, and think of her as the Queen of Cables.

Most of the cables are original to the wondrous author. Hardcover. 275pp. Learn More
