Icelandic Knitting book

Scandinavian style

Books in English on Icelandic knitting don’t come along very often – and this one – translated from the Icelandic – is an unmissable eye-opener to another knitting culture. The brightly coloured designs using traditional rose patterns on everything from sweaters to baby clothes are stylish, adorable, and totally distinctive. They’d make charming gifts, and the basic techniques and designs laid out in the book can be easily adapted for your own patterns, too.
