Saltwater Gifts from the Island of Newfoundland

More than 25 Fashion and Home Styles to Knit
Christine Legrow & Shirley Scott


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

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

The authors 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. All patterns are rated by difficulty and clearly presented for today's knitters. Includes tips, tricks and stories.
