Knitting Nordic Patterns
Knitting Nordic PatternsMaja Karlsson
The fact that Sweden has a wealth of traditional multi-colour patterns is something that knitting designer Maja Karlsson discovered when she was doing research. The result of her work is this unique book of 40 fantastically beautiful and traditionally Nordic patterns applied to 22 knitted garments. There are flowers, borders, geometric figures, landscapes, people and animals which on their own or together form the framework of Nordic patterned knitting.
Knitting Nordic Patterns contains clear diagrams and knitted gauge swatches that show you how to create them stitch by stitch. There are patterns for everything from wrist warmers, hats, mittens and socks to sweaters, cardigans and ponchos – all well thought-out and many with extra detailing to give them a special touch. The clear and easy-to-follow instructions and photographs make this a perfect book for both experienced and beginner knitters. So whether you are longing for a challenge or just something quick and easy, you will find just the right project here.
Maja Karlsson lives in Arvika and works as a freelance knitwear and crochet designer, writer, photographer, lecturer and course leader. She also a blogger for Järbö garn and runs her own online shop for yarn and haberdashery.
