Knitting Traditions - Fall 2014

Availability: In stock

$14.99

Quick Overview

In PieceWork’s ninth edition of Knitting Traditions, we explore the practical and creative evolution of knitting. Beginning with a visit to the Orkney Islands, we learn how gansey and lace stitch designs evolved there both through everyday life and because of its particular geography.

Then we sail to The Netherlands where, through the colorful lives of sherfolk, ganseys and their stitch patterns developed into a rich Dutch tradition full of its own symbolism and history. And there are other sorts of adaptions in this issue.
