This review is from: Knitting Scandinavian Slippers and Socks (Paperback)
This is an American book and although at times the text is quite garbled it is worth persevering.
A complete beginner may struggle to follow the instructions in this book, but with an experienced knitter friend to help them make sense of the text and chart they will find that the concept is not complicated.
Nothing in this book will tax the experienced knitter.
All patterns are in chart form, there are written instructions as well but it is made unnecessarily complicated by her abbreviations. i.e. the main colour MC constantly changes and the contrast colour CC is always white.
She uses TK1 for knit 1. All the stitches are Twisted in the Norwegian fashion and the spurious 'T' stands for this twist stitch.
If you knit the ladies size it will not look like the picture, of which there are many and all clear, as they depict the larger mans size.
I like the start of the slippers and socks chapters where she uses different coloured yarn to show each section.
For the intermediate plus knitter this is worth the money.
Because the patterns are in chart form it is simple to adapt the template to your own patterns.
Once you have done a couple of these it is easy to knit from memory without a pattern.
