Book Description

20 Feb 2013
Inspired by the dramatic murals in the medieval churches of the province of Uppland, Sweden, this collection of colorful knitwear projects is sure to challenge and reward experienced knitters. Whirling botanical details, three-dimensional patterns, and embellished borders combine in a sumptuous collection of sweaters, vests, hats, and mittens in sizes for adults and children. With clearly presented instructions and color photographs of both the completed designs and the paintings, panels, and tapestries that inspired them, the stunning results of these patterns are complete with button details, creative edgings, flattering profiles, and finishing touches that are reminiscent of the tunics and robes commonly worn in the Middle Ages.

Review

I always get excited about themed sweaters from the past or based on countries and so often they are a disappointment. Not so this book. I do like most of the designs. There are ideas for all the family here. One thing I would say is that the sleeveless designs seem shapeless to me, I would have to do some changes to the design shape if I were knitting those. Anna-Karin has made good use of her source material. And what source material. Anna-Karin has taken medieval paintings from Swedish churches for her inspiration. Many of the paintings are shown in the book and they are a real treasure. This book has good photographs, interesting designs and instructions that appear easy to follow. There are simple charts to follow. I would recommend this to anyone interested in knitting.-Yarnsandfabrics.co.uk/crafts Anna-Karin Lundberg is said to have taken inspiration from murals in medieval churches in the province of Uppland, Sweden for her 20 original knitwear designs in this book. Each pattern exudes colour and challenging techniques that will takes your imagination back to what could have been worn all those centuries ago. Each pattern not only includes easy-to-read charts and well organised instructions but they are also accompanied by the paintings, tapestries or panels that inspired them. Inside, you can work your way through a Norrsunda Angel with Pillar Cardigan, a Sanga Leaf Pattern Vest to a Bromma Starry Sky Sweater. The book ends with a handy section regarding techniques, embroidery on knit fabric, garment care and yarns.-Yarnwise

I live in Sweden and bought this book in the original language for both me and my daughter. It's lovely and inspiring. The author has used old church paintings as inspiration for knitted sweaters, the result is stunning! Highly recommend this book.
