Wool Gathering

Elizabeth Zimmermann started Schoolhouse Press in 1958 with a one-page knitting newsletter that included a pattern. In 1969, she expanded to the Wool Gathering booklet that includes a pattern and a short book reviews. Meg Swansen, a master knitter and Elizabeth's daughter, continues the Wool Gathering tradition. The most recent individual issue may be purchased on this page (below). Currently, the Wool Gathering issues are available individually in print format. We are considering a format change (offering both print and digital versions) and will inform knitters if subscriptions become available again.

Back issues that remain in stock are also available. Back issues that are no longer available in Wool Gathering format are often turned into Schoolhouse Press Patterns.

Details for Wool Gathering #92: Garland Necklace Yoke

This EPS yoke is slightly shallower than usual, and there are 3 charts depending upon the depth you want. Deep garter stitch cuffs and a split curved lower edge are additional options. The prototype was knitted in single-strand Unspun Icelandic wool.

When Wool Gatherings become sold out, we re-print the original design in a 1-page leaflet called Spun Out, or, for WG78 and beyond as a Schoolhouse Press Pattern. Spun Out designs are $1.00 each ($3.00 for the Baby Surprise Jacket). Patterns are in color, 4 page format with expanded instructions, technique illustrations and sizing info. We try to keep all of our designs available in one form or another; missing numbers are designs that appear in books by Elizabeth Zimmermann and Meg Swansen.
