Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book offers something for every skill level with a range of pattern complexity. I fell in love with the Fair Isle hat and scarf set with matching legwarmers, the cabled hat and scarf set with matching socks; the stylish Fair Isle vest for women; the traditional Norwegian vest for men; the toasty cabled poncho and the cabled snood with matching socks. I was delighted with the selection of accessories such as totes, bags, and home items with traditional reindeeer, heart, and snowflake motifs. Most patterns in this book are both quick knits and highly-portable projects. Practical, contemporary, and yet traditional, Nordic Knits is an excellent book for those looking to branch into Scandinavian designs with easy-to-follow instructions and charts that also include knitting tips and techniques."

—-Tina Sanders, knitcircus

 

"Aside from the delightful patterns, the rich soft color palette, and natural tweed and vegetable dyed yarns, gives these projects of Northern Europe the added appeal of the original homespun yarns.... The photographs and projects in this book shout home, family, and winter all balled up in the warmth of hand knit.... You will be happy there is snow on the ground and the fire is roaring when you look through this book. Remember, these smallish projects can be taken to-go."

—-Paula Moliver, Hartford Knitting Examiner
