About The Book

Learn to knit the Nordic way

From Shetland to the Faroe Islands, Norway and beyond, there is a shared tradition of knitting intricate patterns in colors that combine and contrast. Whether you have been inspired by watching Danish dramas or you are fascinated by the intricate geometric patterns of Fair Isle, there are designs here that will make you want to pick up your needles and get knitting. Garments include a sweater vest with a vintage feel, an adorable cardigan for a baby, and a Nordic-style yoked sweater. For the home, there’s a cafetiėre cozy, a chunky cushion cover, and more. There’s also a baby blanket that would make a perfect gift, and a lined cover for your e-reader. With full color charts for all patterns, and a techniques section to explain essential colorwork knitting skills, you will have everything you need to know.
