Enjoy Fair Isle Knitting - Chihiro Sato


Chihiro Sato lives in Tokyo but fell in love with Shetland on a first visit in 1989. She was captivated by the subtle shades of Shetland wool and after that first visit she began importing Shetland yarn to Japan, leading her to open her shop, Shaela, importing and supplying wool for over 25 years.

Her love for Shetland and Fair Isle knitting has grown with yearly visits to these islands in the far north of Scotland. She has a deep respect for the traditional patterns and methods but has developed her own ideas to create beautiful contemporary designs with colourations inspired by Shetland’s nature and atmosphere.

This collection of 18 projects will help you to share her love of Fair Isle knitting and enjoy creating unique hand knitted garments inspired by Shetland.
