Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 189306302X, Paperback)

Jamieson's is pleased to present this second book of handknitting patterns. Many use traditional techniques - some are more contemporary. All use the dazzling array of colours and four distinctive weights of yarn produced by Jamieson's of Shetland. All levels of knitters will be inspired to stretch themselves and try new and challenging techniques - or simply enjoy familiar stitch patterns and garment shapes, where the beauty of the yarn itself is the focus. There are beautiful textured sweaters to inspire the advanced beginner and some stunning designs combining colourwork and texture geared to the more experienced knitter. And for the Fair Isle knitter, "Cottage Garden" represents a tour de force of three colour knitting. There are smaller projects like the Brocade Scarf and the Scottish Tam. Beginning knitters looking to expand their stitch repertoire will find the Basketweave Vest or four Panel Jacket manageable challenges where the yarn - in dappled tones like Seaweed, Scotch Broom and Spagnum - does a lot of the work for you.
