Enter the magical world of Scottish folklore with this knitting design book from the mother-daughter duo of Alice and Jade Starmore.
This unique book, named for the Scots term for magic, is rooted in ancient Gaelic folklore. Retellings of traditional tales are accompanied by full-colour photographs taken in remote and romantic Hebridean locations, of gorgeous knitted costumes inspired by the stories. The fanciful and intricate outfits serve as illustrations for the storytelling; simpler versions of the original designs offer complete patterns.
Years in the making, this combination of fable, highly conceptual design and practical instruction will enchant not only knitters but also those in the fashion and costume world and readers fascinated by Scottish and Gaelic legends.
