Knitwear from Fair Isle

15 modern designs inspired by traditional patterns

In the book Knitting from Fair Isle, Mati Ventrillon presents a collection of designs inspired by the traditional Fair Isle knitting patterns that have been used on the Scottish island for more than two centuries.

Mati Ventrillon carries on these old traditions in his very own way. Among her designs, which have been shown on Chanel's catwalk, you will find modern versions of traditional sweaters, scarves, half mittens and hats, including the fisherman's hat called "kep".

The book is full of beautiful knitting patterns in different variations, and they all have easy-to-understand instructions explained in text and diagrams. The unique patterns are accompanied by thorough tips on yarn and assembly, so that both new, lightly practiced and seasoned Fair Isle knitters can join in.

With Knitting from Fair Isle you can learn about patterns, shapes and colors and maybe even find your very own Fair Isle style. The book also contains inspiring pictures that give a small glimpse of life on one of the most remote of the Scottish islands.

Mati Ventrillon moved in 2007 from London, where she worked as an architect, to Fair Isle – one of the islands that make up the Shetland Islands. Here, over a number of years, she learned about the traditional patterns and heard the stories of the women who knitted these masterpieces throughout their lives despite difficult life circumstances. Since then, she has developed her own style within Fair Isle knitting and is now carrying on several hundred years of tradition.
