I knew I'd end up buying this, ever since I saw it & its sister volume (Knit your own Britain) advertised in a magazine. This is possibly slightly my favourite of the two, with its WONDERFUL William Wallace - a fiercesome Scot with long red hair, bushy eyebrows and clansman's outfit. Also love Robert Burns & Bonnie Prince Charlie. There's Nessie in a tartan cap, not to mention Highland Cattle, bagpipes and even a Tunnock's teacake!

There are some amazing patterns in this book. I am so excited I don't know where to start!
Rabbie Burns or William Wallace? Scotch pie or Tunnochs teacake? The Scottish terrier looks good but then so does the wee flock of sheep! Decisions, decisions.........

I ordered this because I know a couple of people who enjoy knitting and have Scottish connections. I had it delivered to me before I sent it to check if the concept and patterns lived up to expectations. The Scotch Pie pattern is almost the most hilarious because the picture of it in the book looks so authentically like an actual pie. Even if you can't knit, you will still get a lot of laughs looking at the brilliant pictures of what you can do to Knit Your Own Scotland.

I saw a review of this book in the Scotsman newspaper and could not resist the idea of knitting my very own Tunnochs Teacake or a Scotch Pie.
The selelection of patterns lived up to my expectations.
There is a wide choice from Braveheart to Nessie and an amazingly recognisable Andy Moray!
There is also a thistle key ring tag, a Saltire bag, a Scottie dog and many more.
The instructions are clear and easy to follow.
It would be helpful to have the type of yarn e.g. 4 ply, arran etc explained as it is not always possible to source the yarns recommended and many patterns just need small amounts of several yarns which can be easily sourced from any knitter's stash.
Suitable for beginners and the more experenced knitter.
Many of these projects would make a great gift for any homesick expat.
I am looking forward to volume 2 Jackie.
If the authors need any ideas why not start with a haggis?

Only very experienced knitters (fortunately I am one of them) could follow some of the instructions. Some of these are unclear and there are quite a few typographical errors in the instructions which would be really confusing for some people if they can't work it out for themselves. They are however interesting to do and and I would recommend the book.

This is a brilliant book for knitters and non-knitters alike. The production is excellent showing the fine attention to detail in the finishing of each item. Filled with humour and information about Scotland, the book is a pleasure on the eye and a great treat to share with friends.

As soon as I find the right yarns, I am going to present my friends with pies and teacakes that won't go mouldy. I might even do Rabbie Burns for the next person I know who is having a Burns Supper - it won't be me, I am never going to another one. The Billy Connolly and Andy Murray characters are brilliant.

Just so quirky! I love it so much and I can't even knit. I am particularly in love with the scotch pie. It is a marvel.
