By: Hilary Grant (author)Paperback
In Knitting from the North Hilary Grant - who lives in Orkney, at the very north of Scotland, closer to Norway than London - has translated her most popular patterns from her luxury Scottish knitwear range into 30 colourful hand-knitting projects - hats, mittens, scarves and jumpers - to keep your hands warm and spirits high. Simple, clean shapes ensure that pattern and colour are at the forefront, creating modern yet timeless designs. Each project follows a pattern with a mitten, hat and scarf variation for a whole winter collection of accessories. Hilary also shares her inspiration behind the patterns,expert tips on finishing, as well as advice on colour and selecting yarns that enhance the lustre of the natural fibres, while inspirational photography provides a window on life at 59 North.
Hilary Grant grew up on the West Coast of Ayrshire with a mother who was a keen knitter and instilled the ethos of buying good quality, long lasting clothes. She studied textile design at the University of Dundee before working at Alexander McQueen designing embroideries and leatherwork. After moving back to Scotland, Hilary started her own knitwear label in 2011.
