Lakeland is a celebration of British heritage wear, the stunning Lakeland landscape and of British woollen yarns. These fourteen classic, but contemporary fit garments are perfect for fell walking as well as providing essential warmth to the coldest of winter days.
The fifth book in the Sarah Hatton cosy series contains 10 simple designs for the home ranging from chunky cushions and throws, cute teapot and mug cosies and also a slouchy cardi, all perfect for keeping you warm and toasty.
Look beyond the overlooked, where the faded glory of the past provides the perfect backdrop for the present. A collection where time honoured traditions are cherished and nutured; contemporary tweeds, cosy cables and jewel coloured aran simmer and smoulder against gritty time worn walls, beauty really is to be found in the most unexpected places.
So still. With an ease and a quiet confidence the collection has an aura that is hard to resist, hushed tones enhance the mood, while deep cables and subtle ribbing complete the story. The sensuality of sheer fabrics and the simplicity of clean lines have no desire to seek limelight but can't fail to command attention.
Give yourself a treat with Martin Storey's collection of contemporary simplified fairisle designs. Choose from 14 designs from hats, socks, scarves and cushions plus a slipover, bag, throw and garland - all with only two colours in a row.
Jem Weston's first book includes 10 contemporary handknits projects to knit for you and your home or for friends and children. You'll find everything from cushions to a quirky draught excluder shaped like a fox.
Anyone with a generous figure wants to find the right knitwear design but too many patterns do not include the appropriate size and if they do, the designs often lack style. Martin addresses these issues on both counts by creating a range of wearable knits that mean whatever you figure shape, you should find something to suit you. Included in his collection are some lovely delicate wraps in soft yarns and pretty shrugs and boleros to wear over summer dresses and tops. There are also longer-line tunics to wear with trousers, and jackets, cardigans and slipovers, as well as a three-quarter length trademark Martin Storey cable coat. And there are a couple of accessories thrown into the mix for good measure.
Debbie Abrahams and Jane Crowfoot use a range of beautiful yarns, combining knitting and crochet, stitch and technique to bring together a creative and inspiring collection of 24 projects for the home.
