5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent historical information ,and patterns 13 Sep 2001
By A Customer
I throughly enjoyed this book, the historical information was quite complete with wonderful pictures of Emma Jacobson the founder of Bohus Stickning. Numerous knitters and designers who were with this organization over the years were also included in the photographic record .Wendy Keele the author was granted special permission by Emma's daughter,Ingrid Masterson to include many patterns in the book,many other patterns which were not included can be graphed from the excellent photos.I had been waiting many years for a book in English on Bohus Stickening and this was certainly worth the wait.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Addition to my Bookshelf 23 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book after reading about it on Kate Davies' blog and, being of Scandinavian descent, thought it would be wonderful to read about a nordic craft in the knitting genre that I love. The history it contains appeals to the history buff in me whilst the knitting patterns satisfies the crafter. A beautiful addition to my bookshelf but not a book that will be used often.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book 3 July 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Wonderful book, lots of interesting material, and beautifully laid out. My only gripe is that I would have preferred the patterns in the original gauge.
