|Verfügbarkeit:||Auf Lager (1)|
Dieses Buch ist in Englisch. Ab Oktober 2021 auch in Deutsch erhältlich.
From the Scottish Highlands to the courts of Versailles to the eastern shores of North America, the TV show «Outlander» brings to life in gorgeous detail the epic love story of Jamie Fraser and Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser. But beyond the drama and passion, what has captured fans' imagination the most are the knits worn on the show. Now knitters of all skill levels can recreate the rustic knits with 20 projects for apparel, accessories, and home décor. Knit the capelet cowl that Mrs. Fitz gives to Claire at Castle Leoch, warm your feet with Clan Mackenzie Boot Socks, swaddle your bairn with the Mo Chridhe Baby Blanket, and dress your Jamie in a warm waistcoat. From chunky knits to Celtic cables, each project includes a clearly written pattern, gorgeous photography, and scenes from the set.
This book is our love letter to the fans. We're right there with you, knitting in front of the TV, wishing we were in the Highlands instead. The projects in this book were created by expert knitting designers and are a mix of homages to the costumes worn in the show and items inspired by characters or scenes. Even if we don't see one on-screen, we know that expert tea-leaf reader Mrs. Graham would need a cozy for her teapot. Each pattern lists Skills Required so you'll know what techniques are needed. The Glossary and Techniques section at the back of the book is there to help you out with terms and techniques you might not know.
We hope you enjoy making (and wearing) these projects and that they transport you through the stones.
