In this exciting new book, writer and designer Kate Davies unravels the tale of one of the
Twentieth Centuryʼs most distinctive sweater styles - the circular yoke. From Shetland and
Iceland to Canada and Sweden, Kateʼs essays and conversations take you on a journey
around the North Atlantic, exploring the yokeʼs intriguing and often surprising regional
narratives. A garment with unexpected national and political resonances; an important
marker of personal and cultural identity; a fashionable barometer of trends and technical
transformations from the 1920s to today, yokes have connected the lives and livelihoods of
many different women. In this book youʼll hear the voices of those women, from designers
to artists, from knitters to entrepreneurs. You will read about Elizabeth Zimmermannʼs
seamless innovations, learn more of Kerstin Olssonʼs knitterly aesthetics, and discover the
fascinating influence of the Greenlandic nuilarmiut.
The essays and conversations are accompanied by a collection of eleven signature yoke
patterns. Featuring a wide range of design elements from colourwork and cables to beads
and texture, Kate has created a yoke for every knitter.
So take up your needles, open up this book, and discover the story of the sweater that
changed the shape of modern knitting.
