Knits from Northern Lands
20 Projects Inspired by Traditional Knitting Techniques
Taking inspiration from the Scandinavian, Nordic and Celtic regions, this book contains 20 charming and modern projects, based on traditional knitting styles and techniques. Exploring the iconic colourwork of Fair Isle or Scandinavia, or the chunky cables of Aran knitting, the intricacies of Shetland lace knitting or the cosiness of a Guernsey style pillowcase, these are knitwear items that are made to last.
The author shares the inspiration and history behind each thoughtful project, as well as easy-to-follow patterns, colourwork charts and atmospheric photography. She uses a serene and calming colour palette which, combined with beautiful soft yarns and stylish designs, makes for a collection of highly desirable items including garments and home accessories.
Whether you’re a relative beginner or already an experienced knitter, with Jenny Fennell's guidance, you’ll soon be creating truly special and one-of-a-kind pieces that can be cherished for generations.
