Join knitwear designers Mary Jane Mucklestone and Gudrun Johnston for a true Shetland adventure! Their first co-authored book, Grand Shetland Adventure Knitsis a love letter to these fascinating islands, their nature, traditions and people. It features fourteen knitwear patterns perfect for a trip to Shetland, from cosy socks and hats to colourwork sweaters.

Short travel stories showcase some of Mary Jane and Gudrun's favourite places to visit, taking you on an unforgettable journey to a place that has dramatically impacted the knitting world despite its small size and remote location. 

Mary Jane Mucklestone, also known as MJ, is a knitwear designer, teacher, and author of several knitting books who is based in Maine. She is endlessly enchanted and inspired by Shetland's windswept isles. Her book 200 Fair Isle Motifs is used by The Shetland Peerie Makker's after-school knitting program, which for MJ, is the equivalent of winning an Oscar!

Gudrun Johnston is a Shetland-born knitwear designer currently based in Massachusetts. She is known for accessible modern-day patterns greatly inspired by her heritage. She frequently returns to Shetland, where she loves spending time with her family on the Westside.
