Handknitting allows the designer an unbounded freedom to create a completely personal expression of their art through the use of colour, embellishments, structure and styling, using only knitting needles and skeins of yarn. In this beautiful book, previously published as Norsk Strikkedesign, a selection of Norway's foremost knitting designers present over thirty beautiful and unique knitted garments and accessories, all using classic Norwegian-spun wool yarns and based on traditional Norwegian folk patterns.

At the beginning of each collection, meet the high-profiled designers who have worked for the Norwegian knitwear industry and created award-winning collections. Each of their creations is accompanied by stunning photographs of the items as well as the countryside that inspired them. All the pieces include information on the materials used, as well as pattern charts and detailed instructions. In addition, advice is provided on washing and caring for your garments to ensure your knitted design has the perfect, professional finish.

This book presents the very best of contemporary Norwegian knitwear design, drawing on its traditional roots and planting it firmly in the twenty-first century.
