I constantly refer to this book, and have read all of the stories. It's one of those books that capture the old times of knitting, thank goodness! Any serious knitting history lover will want this book, and there are countless pattern to inspire you.

Well documented pattern charts for Gansey, and Fair Isle sweaters documented by the author direct from the source, traditional knitters from fishing villages around the Scottish and Shetland Isles. There is also a stitch dictionary for cable designs in the back of the book with written directions (not charted with knitting symbols). Beautiful full color photos of the sweaters themselves, and a very large number of B&W photos of the fisherman and women wearing their creations. All of these patterns are classic and will never become dated. Includes a small number of complete patterns for the sweaters and vests themselves:

Mrs. Polson's Pattern (men's vest with a snowflake motif, all over pattern)
Mrs. Dalzill's Pattern (men's vest with an all over diamond and vine pattern)
Mrs. Garrick's Patterns (2 pullovers and 1 turtle neck, one with rows of snowflake motifs alternated by rows of peerie patterns, the other 2 with rows of a rose or flower motif alternated by rows of peerie patterns).

The Prince of Wales's Jersey Pattern (no picture provided of the finished sweater, only the classic painting). The charted design is surprisingly simple.

The vast majority of charted designs are simple, conducive to production knitting, and utility garments for family, however, there are a few with more complex designs for "Sunday best."

This is a beautiful pattern book that is a must-have for any fan of Fair Isle knitting. This is a new and expanded version from the 1984 edition.

This book celebrates knitting as it was in the life of small fishing communities located on the coast of the British Isles. It was essential to survival, not recreational as it is now.

Traditional Knitting not only gives an interesting history and depiction of knitting, but also covers basics. There are beautiful vintage and functional patterns.

*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

As a relatively new knitter, I am fascinated with the sweater design origins. This book is as full of stories about the aran, fair isle and gansey sweaters as patterns for them. There are many lovely patterns included. If you find a decent copy snap it up! My hope is that this book would be republished.

If you're interested in traditional patterns this is an excellent resource.
