Overview

24 exciting and contemporary design projects! Explore a variety of traditional stitches using a rainbow of colors.

What happens when beautifully crafted handknits meet a Scottish sense of color and whimsy? You get an exquisite book of Scottish-influenced designs that knitters will crave, created by renowned knitter Martin Storey.

Scotland has a rich tradition in handknitting thanks to the exquisite hand-dyed yarns that have been spun in the Scottish islands for centuries. Traditional techniques have been handed down through generations, resulting in a treasure trove of stitch patterns, textures, and colors.

In Scottish Knits, Martin pays homage to beautiful Celtic cables and colorwork with 24 stunning and innovative handknits accessible to knitters of all skill levels. The projects include garments, accessories, and home goods, many of which feature different color patterns or textures in a single piece.
