Local designer joined forces with Pom Pom Press for the latest installment 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 fiber enthusiasts, Gudrun has unearthed some of her mother's best-loved designs and updated them for contemporary knitters. This collection contains 11 patterns for garments and accessories. Use them to create seventies-inspired dream ensembles as well as 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 stores and wishes knit into every stitch.
