  • Description or summary of the audiobook: In late 19th century, Cornwall hand-knitting was a vital cottage industry and coastal villages developed their own distinctive patterns and names for the traditional navy blue guernsey or knit-frock. Contract-knitting - the occupation of many Cornish women - had died out by the 1920s and was almost forgotten until Mary Wright started asking old people what they remembered of it. Her research has resulted in a remarkable picture of social history. This book includes many delightful contemporary photographs, and detailed instructions and charts show how to knit a Cornish guernsey incorporating one of thirty local patterns. Mary Wright is a specialist knitting instructor. Her work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United Kingdom, and in Japan. Since the publication of Cornish Guernseys and Knit-frocks she has given many lectures and broadcasts.
