This beautiful new Annual is a celebration of firsts for Shetland Wool Week – it includes two heritage patterns: working with the Unst Heritage Centre, Shetland Museum and Donna Smith, they have revived and reinterpreted two distinctly different vintage garments for today’s knitter. Additionally, after many requests, there will be the option to buy the Annual as a digital PDF option for the first time.
Now in its eighth edition, the SWW Annual is a true celebration of creativity, crofting and textiles heritage as well as a showcase of the versatility of Shetland wool in all its different hues. With stunning photography that captures the essence of the islands, there are 13 patterns from 11 designers which include Fair Isle, lace and weaving. There is a good balance of projects from stash busting ideas which include smaller accessories through to bigger, more challenging knits.
