Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Norwegian knitter and knitwear historian Sundbo is a recognized expert on Norwegian motifs, and this book introduces knitters to the storied history of Norwegian knitting, providing 28 patterns for mittens and gloves using classic motifs and techniques." —Norwegian (July 2012)
Library Journal
Even nonknitters can recognize the classic Norwegian knitting style—the "ski sweater" featuring snowflakes, stylized flowers, and reindeers. Norwegian knitter and knitwear historian Sundbo is a recognized expert on Norwegian motifs, and this book introduces knitters to the storied history of Norwegian knitting, providing 28 patterns for mittens and gloves using classic motifs and techniques. While full directions for shaping the mittens are provided, knitters need to have basic knowledge of stranded knitting and knitting in the round—these topics are not covered. VERDICT Stranded knitting is increasingly popular, as is folk knitting, and Sundbo's knowledge of her topic shines. Also, the small scale of mittens and gloves makes them an excellent starter project for knitters new to stranded knitting.

    Knitters' Delight

    Beautiful mittens and gloves for everyone on your list. The charts are for right AND left hands, not just a note to "do the other one the same only backwards", which is a help. The 25 classic designs work out to 1¢ per pattern, and that is not even counting the wonderful Foreword and the text that accompanies the patterns. The patterns are easy to follow, the finished mittens are beautiful.
