Sark by Kate Davies


In stock


Lost City Knits is proud to carry books by Scottish designer Kate Davies. The patterns in Sark pair with Wooldreamers Mota DK. The following is from Kate’s website.



Sark (n) a simple shirt or chemise 

Sark (v) to clothe, to provide with clothing 

Sark (n) the underlying structure of a roof or building 

Sark (v) to line or underpin 

In Scots, a sark is an essential layer, the foundation of any outfit. In her new collection, Kate Davies has created twelve foundational designs with structure and simplicity at their heart. Featuring a technique of twisting stitches that produces fabric with a beautifully textured and embossed appearance, each pattern explores the creative potential of the twisted stitch in pieces that are engaging to knit and easy to wear. There’s a comfortable oversized gansey, a smart cardigan with panels and puffed sleeves, a pair of yoke sweaters, a cosy wrap, and an appealing range of quick-to-knit one-skein accessories, all designed with the clear instructions and clean finishing details that are hallmarks of Kate’s work. The book also includes a collection of thought-provoking monochrome images, as Tom explores ideas of pattern and structure in the natural world and built environment. A celebration of collaborative, creative making, Sark is a book as beautiful as it is useful.

12 patterns (6 garments, 6 accessories) for DK yarn. Introduction by Kate Davies plus interview with Norah Gaughan.
