The elegant styling and exquisite detail of traditional fisherman's knits are brought to life in Alice Starmore's 20 original sweater designs for men, women, and children.
3. Ireland (including the Aran Isles)
4. Points North, South and East (including Breton, Norway and the Baltic lands and the Faroes)
5. The New World (hey, that's US!! Nova Scotia, Cape Cod, and more.)
The sweaters range from the thickly cabled true Aran style (the gorgeous Innishmore is incredibly deep and intricate) to colorwork such as a combination of textures and pattern characteristic of Estonian knitting. There is also an adorable child's sweater modeled after a Breton sailor's striped jersey.
This is one of Starmore's most useful books. The sweaters could be worn by men, children, fashionable women, hikers, you name it. If you love TEXTURE, you will adore this, but there is also color. In addition to the designs I just mentioned, I love the charming "Nova Scotia" featuring scallop shells in a knit-purl design.
This is one of my favorite Starmore books.
