For both experienced and
beginner knitters, this is an inspirational collection of favourite
motifs found in the traditional knitting of Norway, Sweden, Denmark,
Iceland and the Faroe Islands, including charming motifs of stars,
hearts, flowers, leaping reindeer and dancers, as well as delightful
geometric patterns, and more.
Each motif is shown as a
hand-knitted swatch, illustrated with clear, life-sized photographs and
accompanied by easy-to-read colour charts, and a reverse colourway
suggestion. With clear details on reading colour charts, and a full
review of techniques for two-colour knitting, this book also gives
advice on incorporating the Scandinavian motifs into a variety of
different projects, allowing you to create unique designs. Includes
guidance on choosing yarns, use of colour, and finishing techniques to
help you hone your knitting skills and create stylish projects.
