Description

Product Description

    • Looking to the traditional knitting techniques of Scandinavia, Estonia, Iceland, and the Faroe and Shetland islands, she offers modern interpretations of such heritage techniques as twined knitting, two-color knitting, lace techniques, damask, fair isle, embroidery, and rya (knotted knitting similar to shag carpet)
    • The projects in the book embrace the Danish notion of hygge - taking pleasure in comforting and cozy things, and often associated with family and close friends
    • Emphasizing pattern and color, these knitted designs also embody the Scandinavian aesthetic of making utilitarian objects beautiful as well as useful
    • Lucinda Guy continues her exploration of folk-knitting traditions in this colorful volume of small projects and accessories
    • Additionally, the book celebrates the specific wools traditionally used in each project and provides thumbnail sketches of the history and folk culture surrounding each technique.
    • The 20 projects include mittens, socks, hats, scarves, and bags, and are perfect for wearing and gifting
