Summary

Iceland boasts a rich heritage of knitting. Thanks in equal parts to the island's special wool, harsh climate, and the need to battle the elements, Icelandic knitters have developed unique traditions of both needlework techniques, handknit styles, and Scandinavian patterns. Icelandic Handknitscollects 25 patterns for folk mittens, socks, scarves, hats, mittens, wristers, handbags, knapsacks, and sweaters inspired by traditional knits. An introduction reflecting on the history of Icelandic-style knitting and the stories behind the vintage handknits that inspired the patterns will be included. But this is more than just a book of knitting. Vintage photographs of Icelandic fisherman, knitters, and other inhabitants proudly displaying their knitwear; classic recipes; and photos of the artifacts that inspired the designs crown this collection.
