WINDSWEPT is a collection of attractive Fair Isle and cable knitting patterns by Rowan Head Designer Marie Wallin. Knitters familiar with the beautiful Rowan knitting magazines will recognize the pattern layouts and styling--there are full-colour photos, schematic drawaings with garment measurements, and charts for the Aran cable and Fair Isle designs.
