"For years knitters have been pining for the return of Michael Pearson's lovely book, "Traditional Knitting, " complete with historical notes, charts, photos and patterns for Fair Isle, Guernsey, and Aran sweaters. Once again, our wish is granted by dear Dover." Meg Swansen, "Schoolhouse Press
""A fascinating and well researched book." "Evening Press
"After visiting the remote fishing villages of Scotland and England, Michael Pearson compiled this extensive record of unique patterns. His sources include oral traditions, documents, family albums, and photos. Pearson combines a social history of the villages and the living history of these crafts with detailed patterns and practical instructions for knitters. For this revised and expanded edition, the author has added an extensive selection of new pattern charts and full knitting instructions, making this essential work even more valuable to lovers of traditional knitting.
"Great collection of patterns. So much history. I learned so many interesting things. The pictures were amazing and definitely my favorite part. A history and knitting lesson wrapped up in one book." Debbie's Bookcase"
