Grand Shetland Adventure Knits
Join knitwear designers Mary Jane Mucklestone and Gudrun Johnston for a true Shetland adventure! Their first co-authored book Grand Shetland Adventure Knits is a love letter to these fascinating islands, their nature, traditions and people. It features 14 knitwear patterns that are perfect for a trip to Shetland: from cozy socks (one of the patterns uses our Mondim yarn — as seen in the second photo) and hats to colorwork sweaters.
Short travel stories showcase some of Mary Jane and Gudrun’s favorite places to visit, taking you on an unforgettable journey to a place that — despite its small size and remote location — has had a great impact on the world of knitting.
Mary Jane Mucklestone, also known as MJ, is a knitwear designer, teacher, and author of several knitting books (like this one and this one) who is based in Maine. She is endlessly enchanted and inspired by Shetland's windswept isles.
Gudrun Johnston is a Shetland-born knitwear designer currently based in Massachusetts. She is known for accessible modern-day patterns that are greatly inspired by her heritage. She frequently returns to Shetland, where she loves spending time with her family on the Westside.
14 knitting patterns: 3 sweaters, 2 cardigans, 1 vest, 2 hats, 2 shawls, 1 cowl, 2 pairs of socks, 1 pair of gloves.
