150 Scandinavian Knitting Designs
Mary Jane Mucklestone is a hand-knitting designer known for her inventive colourwork design. She has a passion for folk knitting and has travelled the world refining her craft. Her book 200 Fair Isle Designs was an instant classic.
For both experienced and beginning knitters, this is an inspirational collection of designs found in the traditional colourwork knitting of Scandinavia, including charming stars, hearts, flowers, leaping reindeer and dancers, as well as delightful geometric patterns, and more.
Each design is shown as a hand-knitted swatch, illustrated with a clear, life-sized photograph, and accompanied by an easy-to-read clack and white chart. Many designs also have colour charts, an alternative colourway chart and a mix and match suggestion.
The designs in this book can be combined and used in a myriad of ways. Four stunning beginner projects, with full making instructions, are included to inspire you and guidance on choosing and using designs in your own projects is also given.
The book also includes a full review of two-colour knitting and finishing techniques to help you to hone your knitting skills and create stylish garments.
