Wonderful creative patterns
on 23 October 2013
In "Knit Nordic" Eline Oftedal introduces iconic Norwegian patterns and helps us to apply them to a wide range of projects. I personally love the iPad/Tablet cover and the wrist warmers.
The book is written in a friendly easy to access style with sections on the fascinating history of the patterns, the patterns themselves and hints and tips on techniques. Each of the projects has clear instructions and is marked with a skill level. Some are nice and simple, whilst still looking great, others are challenging and yet the instructions are so clear you complete the project with a great sense of achievement.
The photography throughout the book is beautiful and captures the whimsy of some patterns and the utility of others. I am so pleased that Eline re-imagined these Norwegian patterns into ideas that can be used all year round.
