Another Alice Starmore book is The Celtic Collection - 25 Knitwear Designs for Men and Women; hardcover, 1992; 144 pages; out of print.
The book has beautiful patterns for knitwear with a strong Celtic flavour. The designs draw on four distinctive knitting styles: Fair Isle, Fisher Gansey, Aran and Intarsia. The recipes are for men, women and children. Many of the patterns could easily be worn by both men and women. The designs are charted as well as written-out. Again, the colourways are discontinued and substitutions would need to be made.
There are some garments in the book that I am certain I will knit in the future. It is a beautiful book with wonderful colour photography shot on location the the west of Ireland.
Although out of print, this book is not to difficult to find and the price I paid on ebay was US$27.00.
