The Vintage Shetland Project, is the culmination of eight years of hard work and personal determination. Inspired by the patterns and colors of Shetland knitting, the fashion historian, author, designer and publisher Susan Crawford began a journey into the rich heritage of Shetland knitwear, and in particular the pieces held in the Shetland Museum archive.
The Vintage Shetland Project is a beautiful hardback book of:
478 pages including carefully researched essays and stunning photographs
27 painstakingly recreated patterns of historical Shetland knits that honor the stories behind the pieces and the people who made them
Meticulously transcribed and rewritten patterns in a wide range of sizes for women and men
Photographed by Susan Crawford on the atmospheric island of Vaila, Shetland
Beautifully written in Susan's accessible voice making this a must-read.
