Another brilliant spiral-bound book was produced by West Yorkshire Spinners to complement their very special range of 100% Shetland Wool yarn - The Croft Shetland Tweed and The Croft Shetland Colours.
A collection of family garments and accessories that are traditional yet modern. The 14 designs use a simple, graphic style with a modern twist on traditional Shetland knits.
14 patterns which work in harmony with this Aran weight yarn with references to the Shetland Islands' rich history of colour work.

Sarah Hatton was born in St Albans and spent the early part of her life based in Hertfordshire. Having completed an art foundation course close to home she moved to Yorkshire to complete a degree in Fashion Design at Bretton Hall College, part of the University of Leeds.
Taught to knit at the age of five, Sarah has always had a love of textiles and had a passion for dressing up as a child. As a teenager she showed a flare for customising her own clothes and was always up to the minute with fashion in her own dress sense. Immediately after graduating, Sarah was offered her first job as a designer with a hand knit company. It was here she got to develop her skills in knitting, pattern writing and design. Sarah prides herself on the fact that since graduating she has always worked in the hand knitting industry.
Sarah’s inspiration has a tendency to be garment shape and she rarely works in more than one colour, yet produces amazing wearable garments that explore and push the boundaries of shape and texture.
