  3. WG 101 V-Neck Vests

    From $5.50

    Meg presents detailed instructions for two stylish vests, suitable for any gender. Plus, she uses EPS (Elizabeth’s Percentage System) to layout general instructions for you to craft your own vest in any size/gauge you wish. The cover vest (modeled by Meg’s grandson, Eli) features a Faroese motif (mirror-imaged at front, back and sides), v-neck shaping, inset armholes, a rolled lower-edge, and I-Cord trim. The small motif makes the vest easily sizable; knit with our Unspun Icelandic, Rangeley, or Sheepswool. The second vest is in simple stocking stitch in Shetland wool (work plain, or add stripes or blocks of color, as you wish), with the EPS percentages given at each step. Also included are Meg’s introduction, sketches of the latest new books from SHP, and plenty of illustrations.

  4. WG 100 A-Line Fair Isle Yoke

    From $5.50

    It seemed natural that for Wool Gathering #100 (an auspicious anniversary) I should return to my mum's basic EPS seamless yoke pullover, in homage to her 1958 Newsletter #1 (now available in The Opinionated Knitter). The design relates to NL#1 in the use of Shetland wool, and EPS (Elizabeth's Percentage System). I played with the dimensions and shaping, and it is my intention to show you how easily you can manipulate EPS to suit your needs. This sweater is full of deviations from the standard EPS yoke sweater, but the overall format is still your guide. A few features of this design: short(ish) boxy body in Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift wool, 3/4 length sleeves, a shallow yoke with a Fair Isle pattern, a wide neck opening, subtle rolled edges, and a slight A-line (with instruction for a more dramatic A-line).

  6. WG 98 Cowls

    From $5.50

    Cowls are quite popular at the moment, and for good reason: Relatively quickly knitted (and portable), they provide a cozy, attractive accessory when completed, with opportunities for the knitter to incorporate interesting patterns, textures, or color! In this latest Wool Gathering, Meg and Cully present 5 cowl designs: Meg's pair of 4-Corner Cowls, her Triad Cowl, and Ruffled Cowl, and Cully’s Switchback Cowl. Something for every level of knitter: work beautiful lace motifs (charts included), textured knitting, or plain Stocking stitch. Complete instructions and techniques. Learn More
  7. WG 97 Fingerless Fair Isle and Selbu Flower Mittens

    Woollen Mittens: Providers of warmth and comfort, quickly knitted, many opportunities to experiment with color and patterns, always welcomed as presents, and such interesting histories from the many countries in which mittens hold great cultural significance. Here is Meg’s compilation of motifs for a classic Norwegian Selbu Mitten, plus a pair of fingerless Fair Isle Mitts with a very basic and simple construction. Learn More
  8. WG 96 Danish Floral Pullover

    From $5.50

    This new design of Meg Swansen’s is for a hip-length, 3/4 sleeved, scooped-neck pullover. The light, airy motif is negative-imaged at the lower edges of sleeves and body, and the wool Meg used, Blackberry Ridge (Cream and Pale Iris), is soft enough to wear next to your skin. The sweater is worked up from the lower edge, with a slightly inset, steeked armhole and a deep scooped neck. The sleeves are knitted down from the armhole with an optional shaped sleeve-cap detail.
