Eight years in the making, The Vintage Shetland Project by designer and fashion historian Susan Crawford is inspired by the patterns and colours of Shetland knitting, and in particular the wealth of pieces held in the Shetland Museum archive.

With the help of Dr Carol Christiansen, the museum’s curator, Susan carefully selected the most stunning and original designs from the 1920s to the 1950s, transcribed them stitch by stitch, and has here recreated them for the modern knitter, in stunning detail and a range of sizes for women and men.

The Vintage Shetland Project includes a collection of 27 comprehensive patterns for garments and accessories alongside carefully researched essays exploring the stories behind each piece.

Compiled with Susan’s trademark attention to detail, this book is a fabulous treasury of Shetland knitting design and a valuable insight into its textile traditions.
