From the Publisher

"Break the mold and go bold! Why not let this handicraft consultant (Sweden) teach you a thing or two about innovative knitwear. It is definitely worth looking at, for the inspiration alone!" - Can Do Books, Australia

"This is definitely not just another stitch book." - Halcyon Yarn

"When this book crossed my desk, I looked at the cover and thought, 'Wow, this looks cheerful, but not really my style'. I fully expected that I would flip through it, tell you how pretty it was, and then move on. But...instead, I was blown away." - KnittingScholar.com

"Cool Book! Mix bright colors, interesting stitches and textures and a renowned designer and you get this book." - CraftGossip.com
