24 exciting and contemporary design projects! Explore a variety of traditional stitches using a rainbow of colors.

What happens when beautifully crafted handknits meet a Scottish sense of color and whimsy? You get an exquisite book of Scottish-influenced designs that knitters will crave, created by renowned knitter Martin Storey.

Scotland has a rich tradition in handknitting thanks to the exquisite hand-dyed yarns that have been spun in the Scottish islands for centuries. Traditional techniques have been handed down through generations, resulting in a treasure trove of stitch patterns, textures, and colors.

In Scottish Knits, Martin pays homage to beautiful Celtic cables and colorwork with 24 stunning and innovative handknits accessible to knitters of all skill levels. The projects include garments, accessories, and home goods, many of which feature different color patterns or textures in a single piece.

What is in your books?
I might buy more Interweave books if you actually showed what you want us to purchase. It's 2017, not 1917. Interweave has been in business for a long time; show us the goods! A cover photo & back cover photo is not good enough. I end up going to other sale sites to try finding out what is in these books . Terrible marketing.

This is a delightful book filled with beautiful photographs and brilliant designs. I want to make them all. The color ways are very sophisticated and will span decades of wearing these knitted pieces. All you need is the time to finish them all! Review by Linda (Posted on 1/6/2016)
Just received this. I buy books not for a specific pattern but for ideas. If I find one project I use then it is worth the price. The stitch patterns are wonderful. I change colors as I like and take a cable or colorwork design and use it for another project. This book has everything; hats, ,sweaters, mittens, throws and cushions. It will inspire many projects.

Great patterns and colorwork
My experience is the opposite of the previous reviewer's in that I picked up this book in a store and paid full price because I was so attracted to the color work and designs.

I have not knit any patterns yet, so I cannot comment on the pattern instructions, so I could not give this a 5 star rating yet.

There are special patterns out there for circular color work, but steeking and sewing are fairly common practices, so be aware but don't avoid for that reason if you're comfortable with that approach.

Just Bad
I'm glad I only paid around 7 bucks for this book. None of the patterns are remotely appealing and the colors are hideous. I was interested in the Fair Isle cardigan on the cover only to discover that it's knit in pieces and sewn together. What? No steeks and a zillion ends to weave in? Really...the color selections for these patterns are so bad that not one thing looks like it would be cute on anybody. This is the problem with buying things online. You just don't know what's between the covers. Review by Rebecca (Posted on 7/9/2014)
