Delighted to announce that Kate Davies’ newest book is here!
West Highland Way is a stunning collection of patterns and essays inspired by the Scottish long-distance walking route it’s named for.
Landmarks along this route are marked with musings from Davies and a garment inspired by said landmark. “Còinneach,” a favorite cardigan of mine, is named for a hill overlooking Loch Lomond, for example.
Kate Davies is a knitwear designer and writer who I very much admire, for her traditional-looking, smartly-crafted patterns as well as her academic approach to textiles.
West Highland Way is exactly the kind of book we’ve come to expect from Davies: rich in cultural and historical information, lovingly produced, and bursting with photography as beautiful as the knitwear.
Come by the shop to browse the latest books as well as our older favorites; we keep many of Davies’ books in stock. See you there!
