  • By Kate Davies

    In Allover, Kate Davies has gathered together a colourful collection to capture the joy of stranded knitting.

    Inside this book you’ll find fourteen designs that are bold, playful and eclectic.

    Influenced by northern colourwork traditions from Norway and Sweden to Iceland and Shetland, there are fourteen allover designs to choose from, including graphic hats and mitts and cosy yoke pullovers and cardigans.

    In Starnkeeker, the familiar monochrome motifs of Selbu accessories are adapted for a colour-blocked Argyle vest, while the Tìoraidh cardigan reveals how a small “filler” motif might become a two-tone pattern’s main attraction.

    Kate encourages you to mix things up as well: many of the patterns are charted and photographed in several different colourways in patterns that are full of knitterly inspiration and opportunities for play.

    Whether you are whipping up a jolly pair of Pouzles, or taking your time over a show-stopping piece like Schene, there’s much creative joy to be found in the pages of this colourful book.

    14 patterns (7 garments, 7 accessories) for 4ply / fingering weight and DK / sportweight yarn. Introduction by Kate Davies.

    You will also receive a unique download code which entitles you to a FREE PDF version of this book via Ravelry.

    112pp. Designed and printed here in Scotland.

    Kate Davies Designs

  • 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.
