Create your own projects,
This review is from: 150 Scandinavian Knitting Designs (Knitters Directory) (Paperback)
As a new convert to knitting I am not very experienced, but am making up for that in enthusiasm. This gorgeous book caught my eye at a trade fair because it has such a clear, straightforward way of explaining the patterns as well as the techniques needed to successfully create items with them.
What I like most of all about the book is that it will give you charts for the motifs, which you can then work into a project of your own choice. As a novice knitter I feel both inspired and encouraged to give it a go with the help of this lovely book.
