Book Description

Knitted gifts are treasured in Newfoundland, whatever the season. Designs unique to this glorious island are made to keep loved ones warm all year long — even during early summer when icebergs chill the air.

Capture your heart’s desire with a spring cap or bonnet. Explore the spectacular coastline wearing knitted socks and fine woollen gloves. Prepare for the cool months of autumn and winter with fashionable trigger mitts and hats. And warm up your home with cosy cushions and lovely tea cosies.

With this latest book in the best-selling Saltwater Knits series, Christine LeGrow and Shirley A. Scott offer some of Newfoundland’s most beloved knitwear designs. They also reveal the cultural heritage of these distinctive patterns and demonstrate why they are highly valued by those who live on this island known as The Rock.

Vivid photographs provide inspiration, but you are also encouraged to select your own colours thereby making your gifts distinctive. Like other books in this series, Saltwater Gifts includes tips, tricks, and stories. All patterns are rated by difficulty and clearly presented for today’s knitters.
