Описание: "I think I was lucky in the timing -- I learned to knit just when your book first came out. The other books on the subject seemed to be aimed at people who already knit. . . . and it] is the only one I read for pleasure, not just for patterns." -- Gordon Reid, www.ganseys.com "For years knitters have been pining for the return of Michael Pearson's lovely book, Traditional Knitting, complete with historical notes, charts, photos and patterns for Fair Isle, Guernsey, and Aran sweaters. Once again, our wish is granted by dear Dover." -- Meg Swansen, Schoolhouse Press "A fascinating and well researched book." -- Evening Press After visiting the remote fishing villages of Scotland and England, Michael Pearson compiled this extensive record of unique patterns. His sources include oral traditions, documents, family albums, and photos. Pearson combines a social history of the villages and the living history of these crafts with detailed patterns and practical instructions for knitters. For this revised and expanded edition, the author has added an extensive selection of new pattern charts and full knitting instructions, making this essential work even more valuable to lovers of traditional knitting. "Great collection of patterns. So much history. I learned so many interesting things. The pictures were amazing and definitely my favorite part. A history and knitting lesson wrapped up in one book." -- Debbie's Bookcase

Описание: Mary Walker Phillips nearly single-handedly brought nineteenth-century counterpanes, or bedspreads, to the attention of modern knitters. This book is the product of her international searches of museums, private collections, and magazines, a quest that yielded a choice selection of 46 counterpane patterns as well as 32 lace edgings and borders. Expanded with dozens of brand-new charts, this revised edition of Phillips' influential work makes the patterns even more accessible to knitters of all levels. "This is a terrific book," noted Knitter's Magazine, adding that "the directions, photos, and general production are crisp and clean, just like its subject." The patterns are grouped into chapters by design effect. Within each chapter, they proceed logically from simplest to most complex. Each is accompanied by a photo of its component elements, which the author knitted especially for this book. The patterns include assembly diagrams where needed as well as possible variations. Beginners, experts, and everyone in between will find this volume a splendid resource of versatile patterns.
In this book you will find 263 different patterns and designs, the best traditional knitting material from the Arabic, Spanish, Italian, French, German, Austrian, Dutch, Scandinavian, Shetland, English, Scottish, and Irish knitting traditions. All are presented clearly so you can use them immediately in your own work, or use them for learning how knitting developed the world over. In an easy-to-use format, the patterns and designs are first presented according to country. Then, after a short introduction discussing characteristic patterns, backgrounds, and influences, the author presents groupings of folk designs and traditional patterns. Each pattern and design is accompanied by a photograph of the completed work and either a chart or carefully written out instructions showing how to work the patterns. Since designs and patterns are given for characteristic units that can be repeated, you can use these patterns for projects of all sizes and shapes as well as for individual motifs. With a little planning these patterns can be used successfully for a wide range of knitting needs. Knitters can use this book for learning exciting knitting traditions and for picking up new motifs and designs. In looking through the patterns and designs you will see how new ideas sprang up and how others were carried from culture to culture. But most importantly you will have on hand 256 different patterns, some of the most powerful folk material the knitter can have. The author's clear instructions can be followed by anyone who practices basic knitting.
