Island Wools

Knitting from the North

Sold out.

Knitting from the North presents thirty patterns that offer a unique and contemporary twist on traditional stranded colorwork. Steeped in the knitting tradition of Orkney, Scotland, where Fair Isle knitting makes its home and where Nordic cultural influences are rich, Hilary Grant designs knitwear with a modern aesthetic inspired by the land and wild sea outside her studio window. From fingerless mitts to cowls, hats, and sweaters, the projects here offer original patterns in unique colorways for a fresh approach to knitting with color.
