The Art of Fair Isle Knitting: History, Technique, Color and Pattern

by

The Art of Fair Isle Knitting: History, Technique, Color and Pattern Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A history and technique source of the Fair Isle knitting style featuring color photographs and illustrations that make the volume suitable for a knitter's coffee table book collection. Feitelson puts both her art history background and passion for knitting to good use itemizing the Shetland sweater designs from the 19th century to the 1970s and demonstrating the most efficient ways to produce the designs oneself. Features an easy to follow math instruction for planning sizes and patterns and a glossary of Shetland knitting terms.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Knit colorful hats, gloves, and sweaters in the Shetland tradition.

Synopsis:

Ann Feitelson applies ardent dedication to her research. She leads readers through the history of Fair Isle knitting to an examination of the style's techniques, explicating not only the unique colorways and patterns, but such valuable details as ways to hold the yarn. An accomplished knitter herself, Feitelson presents twenty-three original Fair Isle designs, and encourages readers to create their own. A chapter on math is both easy to follow and invaluable for planning sizes and patterns, while a glossary of Shetland knitting terms links a way of life that is largely gone with the knowledge and skills that The Art of Fair Isle Knitting helps to preserve.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 181) and index.
