Richly illustrated with photos, charts, and drawings, this guide to Scandinavian knitting features patterns for a wealth of handmade treasures. More than 100 graphed patterns in the authentic Nordic tradition include children's and adults' sweaters, jackets, caps, mittens, stockings, and shawls. Simple in cut and striking in decoration, the patterns are based on practical and aesthetic values.
After a brief look at the historical development of wool into yarn, the Introduction provides tips on using the right tools, following patterns, incorporating designs, and making edgings and decorative borders. Above all, this book offers suggestions for adapting classic patterns to suit individual needs and to express personal tastes. In addition to scores of helpful diagrams, the chatty and informative text is complemented with many photos of finished projects as well as historical images depicting people dressed in these beautiful sweaters, hats, and other forms of wearable art.

Reprint of the Lark Books, Asheville, North Carolina, 1984 edition.
