The book “Icelandic Knitting: using Rose patterns” (Search Press 2008) is the result of Hélène Magnússon’s research on floral patterned knitted insoles used in sheep and fish skin shoes in Iceland. Her goal is to preserve an old, unique Icelandic tradition that was being lost and try to give it a new life with new modern patterns. It was first published in Icelandic in 2006, Rósaleppaprjón í nýu ljósi (Salka) and in English in 2007, Icelandic Color Knitting: rose-pattern knitting in a new light (Salka). A French translation is also available.
