The Shetland Trader, Book Three: Heritage by Gudrun Johnston


We have run out of stock for this item.

Get ready for an unprecedented blend of groovy 70s silhouettes, classic Shetland colourwork, and contemporary design elements. Think of bold outlines and shapes which feature intricate, time-honoured Fair Isle motifs. The third book contains eleven patterns (seven garments and four accessories) by Shetland-born knitwear designer Gudrun Johnston.

The designs incorporate the traditional Shetland knitting techniques and motifs Gudrun has helped popularise internationally and represent a throwback to the made-to-order knitwear business run in the 1970s by Patricia Johnston, Gudrun’s mother. Exclusively for this book, Gudrun has selected some of her mother’s best-loved designs and updated them for twenty-first-century knitters.
