Inspired by her local lochside and coastal landscape, in Shore Kate has created a capsule collection of light layers for you to enjoy working on and wearing. All of the knits in the collection are straightforward, wearable and absorbing: there’s a little colourwork, a little lace, and lots of soothing stockinette and garter stitch.
Shore’s patterns include a pullover (Balmaha), a shrug-style cardigan (St Catherines), a tee (Pabaigh), a kerchief (Polkagris) and a shawl (Traigh). Wherever in the world you are, whether you sit by lake or river or ocean, you’ll enjoy knitting something from Shore.
This book comes with a direct download link and unique download code (to allow you to access the pattern via Ravelry, if you wish).

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.
