British fishermen's sweaters are some of the most satisfying creations a knitter can make. Their beauty comes from texture and pattern alone, yet they can be as spectacular or as understated as you wish. Traditionally worked in the round, with knitted-in sleeves, they require no sewn seams-a boon for many knitters! When Sabine Domnick first saw these timeless designs, she knew she had to find out all she could about how to make them. Now, as knitters always do, she shares what she's learned, demystifying the process and passing on the tradition to other hands. Cables, Diamonds, Herringbone is the exclusive English translation of her second book about traditional Guernsey (gansey) and Jersey sweaters. North American knitters are more familiar with the Irish Aran sweaters, but the Scottish and English patterns in these pages are made with finer wool on smaller needles, yielding less bulky sweaters that can either be "dressed up" or worn with a favorite pair of jeans. Either way, they are sweaters your family will appreciate for years to come. Book jacket.
