This is a lovely book - photographs are beautiful and the patterns are lovely - there are many that I want to start straight away. i love knitting and collecting knitting books - this one is definitely going to be used. I don't think this is for a beginner, although I cannot fault the patterns and instructions - it is just that Scandinavian style knitting can be better suited to those who have some experience.

A very interesting and instructive book with lots of imaginative patterns and understandable instructions and pattern 'graphs'
unusually this book is useful for spinners as well as knitters as it describes the weight and length of the wools required
Yes highly recommended

Helene's second knitting book is as much a tour de force as her first. More than just a collection of patterns, she has shown once again the value of thorough original research. Patterns are provided to cover the body from top to toe, for all ages, including the pattern for the all-important yet humble insole which provided the basis for her first book.

None is difficult, as garter stitch is widely used again. The side bar forays into recipes and historical snippets provide the right setting for knitting within Icelandic life, and record them for posterity. The techniques show the importance of obtaining the right wool, and the reference section helps out with this.

I would happily have paid twice as much for this wonderful work!Icelandic Handknits: 25 Heirloom Techniques and Projects

Guess I need to get a hobby as from the oohs and ahhs I will not be seeing her after she has been lost in this book.

I've not done any patterns yet from this book but have in the past knitted individual patterns from her ravelry site, hence withholding a star for the rating above. I like the photographs and the history and it looks as though it has been researched carefully. I would recommend it to any experienced knitter.

It didn't meet my expectations at all. I was expecting more laces like the one on the cover of the book.
