From the top of your head to the tips of your toes, Saltwater Classics will keep you toasty warm with beautiful hand-knit caps, mittens, gloves, socks, and vamps.

For their follow-up to the best-selling Saltwater Mittens, Christine Legrow of Spindrift Handknits and Shirley A. Scott ("Shirl the Purl") present stunning new designs for classic Newfoundland garments. These one-of-a-kind patterns are infinitely adaptable in size and colour combinations.

Saltwater Classics touches on Newfoundland's history and geography, weather and music, and a love of home and family. Wear your Salt and Pepper Cap with Brigus Boot Socks; a pair of Streely Maid Wristers with a Tickle Cove Beanie- and don't forget Mockbeggar Mitts and Treasure Trout Baby Vamps for the young ones.

Saltwater Classics is bursting with more than 150 inspiring colour photographs and dozens of tips, tricks, and tales. All patterns are rated by difficulty and clearly presented for today's knitters.
