The Shetland Trader - Book Three: Heritage

1 item left

Gudrun Johnston joins forces with Pom Pom Press for the latest instalment of her Shetland Trader series. This third volume explores the very roots of the series: the made-to-order knitwear business run in the 1970s by Patricia Johnston, Gudrun's mother, which operated as The Shetland Trader.

Through archival research and a network of family, friends and fibre enthusiasts, Gundrun has unearthed some of her mother's best-loved designs and updated them for today's contemporary knitters. This collection contains 11 patterns for garments and accessories. Use them to create seventies-inspired dream ensembles and timeless heirloom pieces incorporating traditional Shetland knitting techniques and motifs.

The Shetland Trader, Book Three: Heritage, asks us to consider the traditions and fabrics we pass on to those we love and the stories and wishes knit into every stitch.
