In yet another stunning Book, Kate takes her inspiration from Islay's Landscape to create 12 new designs. From modern haps to traditional kilt hose; from fairisle hoodies to cabled cardigans; from a yoke pullover to a colourful modular blanket, the designs are arranged in four "stories" each of which explores different island locale. With their roots in Islay's distinctive history and culture.


In addition to Kate's patterns, this book brings together beautiful photography of Islay and four contributers who share their local expertise on Islay's Wildlife, legacy of Gaelic in the island landscape, its geology and Handicrafts.
