Book Description

From the top of your head to the tips of your toes, Saltwater Classics will keep you toasty warm with beautiful hand-knitted hats, mitts, gloves, socks and vamps.

As their follow-up to the best-selling Saltwater Mittens, Christine LeGrow and Shirley A. Scott have collected and expertly recreated some of Newfoundland’s best loved knitwear. Along the way, they’ve sprinkled in a hefty dose of their own creative flair in presenting stunning patterns you’ll never see anywhere else.

From salt-and-pepper caps to boot socks, and from trigger mitts to vamps (slippers), this book has something for everyone. All patterns are rated by difficulty and clearly presented for today’s knitters.

The dozens of colour photographs will inspire you to make your own bold colour choices — and encourage you to go outside and face the elements in your new cosy pieces. Featuring tips, tricks, and tales, Saltwater Classics is a book for everyone.
