Product description

Traditional Nordic patterns can be seen everywhere, from the catwalk to the high street. In this book from new knit designer Eline Oftedal, four iconic Norwegian knitting patterns - Marius, Voss, Setesdal and Fana - are given new shapes and forms. Includes stories about the inspiration and traditions behind each of the patterns, charting their origins and exploring what it is about these patterns that so appeals to knitters all over the world. We are used to seeing these patterns on sweaters, but here is a collection of twenty contemporary projects to bring these iconic designs up to date. Projects include iPad and phone cover, a teddy bear, a toilet roll holder and even a pair of hotpants.
