When Jeanette Sloan and Kate Davies got together to develop a new design collection the results were sure to be colourful and creative.
From their line-up of 15 original patterns, you might choose to knit mismatched mitts in bold two-tone intarsia or a dramatic pair of elbow-length cabled gauntlets. From warm mittens to delicate wristlets, from fingerless to full gloves, Jeanette and Kate’s design selection includes a wide variety of shades and styles, while among the book’s many different takes on texture, lace and colourwork, you’ll be sure to find your favourite kind of knitting, or interesting new techniques to explore.
Featuring patterns from globally-renowned knitting names alongside the work of talented new faces, this innovative collection brings the work of designers around the world together with fresh ideas, ready needles—and warm hands.

My name is Kate Davies. I live by Scotland’s West Highland Way where I love writing, knitting walking, and swimming in the wonderful landscapes that surround me. I find that each of these activities has a creative and a critical dimension and the best of possible worlds is one in which I productively combine them all.
Knitting is one of my greatest loves, and in 2010 (when a stroke at the age of 36 ended my academic career) I began Kate Davies Designs (KDD) creating digital patterns for hand knitters. The business lent me a platform to combine my skills in research, writing and design, and rapidly grew into a small publishing company through which I began to produce my own books. In Colours of Shetland (2012), Yokes (2014), Buachaille: At Home in The Highlands (2015), The Book of Haps (2016), Shetland Oo (2016), Inspired by Islay(2017), Happit (2017), West Highland Way (2018) Shore (2018) and Milarrochy Heids (2018) I bring my passions for historical writing and practical creativity together. Nothing makes me happier than seeing knitters all over the world enjoying my books and making and wearing my designs.
