Sinopsis:

An acclaimed textile designer, author, artist, and photographer, Alice Starmore is a native of Scotland's Isle of Lewis. Starmore has taught and lectured extensively throughout Britain, Europe, and the United States. She has written 16 books and countless magazine articles, and her classic Book of Fair Isle Knitting is the work that introduced Americans to the popular traditional technique. 4 Questions with Alice Starmore: An Exclusive Dover Interview Alice Starmore has a fascinating tale to tell. We spoke to the author of the #1 crafts bestseller Alice Starmore's Book of Fair Isle Knitting about her knitting background, professional start, and more. Clearly, knitting is a deeply ingrained facet of the culture of Scotland's Outer Hebrides. Did your mother teach you to knit? My mother taught me to knit when I was very young. She was a dressmaker as well as a knitter and our house was a place of constant creativity. I was also born at a time when most women knitted as a matter of course, and I had three aunts who had been fisher girls in their youth and were experts at making traditional fishermen's gansies. I understand that your first language is Gaelic — do you still speak it? Yes I still speak Gaelic. The Isle of Lewis, where I live, is in the Outer Hebrides — the heartland of Gaelic and the only place where you will hear the language in everyday use. How did you get your start professionally? I designed a small collection of knitwear in 1975 and successfully sold it in London boutiques.

Reseña del editor:

This practical book looks at the Fair Isle technique. Rich in pattern and sumptuous in colour, it stresses sound technical information and creative innovation. The photographs, charts and drawings clarify the author's techniques, in an attempt to inspire the reader to start their own projects. There are 14 original patterns for sweaters, hats, gloves, mittens and vests for children and adults. Easy-to-read symbols are displayed with uniform grids. There is also a 17 page library of charted Fair Isle patterns.
