With this book, knitters of all skill levels can create cozy sweaters; fun, summery dresses; stylish jackets; elegant bedspreads; and much more. The Swedes have been avid knitters since the sixteenth century, creating richly textured garments that are both luxurious and practical. Their designs have inspired modern knitting in how yarn is used, what designs are handsome, and also what is functional. This book brings the long-standing Swedish tradition up-to-date with pieces that are as hip as they are fun to make. Each design includes creative ideas to spruce up basic patterns, such as using buttons, pearls, yarn variations, and embroidery. If you’re new to the world of knitting, you’ll appreciate the illustrated step-by-step instructions included to familiarize you with all the basic stitches. If you’re an avid knitter, the tips and tricks, creative variations, and unique patterns will make knitting more fun than you ever imagined. Attractive full-color photographs of stitches, patterns, and finished projects make this book both inspiring and instructional.
