Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A history and technique source of the Fair Isle knitting style featuring color photographs and illustrations that make the volume suitable for a knitter's coffee table book collection. Feitelson puts both her art history background and passion for knitting to good use itemizing the Shetland sweater designs from the 19th century to the 1970s and demonstrating the most efficient ways to produce the designs oneself. Features an easy to follow math instruction for planning sizes and patterns and a glossary of Shetland knitting terms. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
