Good, no great, book! 25 Jun 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
The Norwegian ladies have done it again. This book is wonderful. Elizabeth Zimmerman herself would be proud of what these two gals have done. This book includes basics on designing knitwear, the Norwegian-way. Of course, many of their color schemes are definately NOT traditional AND they work! For the blind follower, the sweaters photographed in the book have patterns that faithfully reproduce the sweater in question.
They really have a great way of approaching this topic. check the book out.

Excellent Reference Book 1 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is such an excellent textbook to study color knitting. The authors not only show twenty-one beautiful patterns with multiple size, but also encourage readers to create their own color design throughout the book. They explain how to develop motifs; they start from examining "dots", "lines", "diagonal lines", or "mirror images" and so on. And then how to create repeats and how to create on sweaters in Norwegian and Nordic tradition. So many charts are shown that it is a resourceful design book as well. The shapes of the sweaters shown are also traditional of its kind; mostly dropped sleeves and dolman-shaped sleeves. It also employs sleeking technique like in traditional fair isle type of sweaters. The bookfs focus is color, which is not very traditional, but is very modern. If you like KENZO type of colors, you will love all of their patterns. Every one of them in the book is as striking as the one shown on the cover. I obtained a second hand book, since it was the only available one. It pays me much more than its cost.

One of the Most Beautiful Knitting Books I Own 3 Mar 2009
By Bonnie Brody - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is a beautiful riot of color. It is as much an art book as it is a knitting book.

The book has project patterns one can knit. However, it provides dozens of color pattern designs that can be adapted for any project. Along with these charts, there are artist and designer sketches to complement the ideas.

This book is an inspiration to me. I look at it over and over. I have used some of the color patterns in my projects and relish in this book's beauty every time I look at it. Cheers to Kolstad and Takle for their vision and execution!

Lots of creative designs and great color match. If you don't like the shape of the sweater, you can still use the patterns on something else
