Knitters like designs to knit that are relatively quick to make yet have interesting patterns. In this book Martin Storey, coauthor of Knitting Goes Large and a top designer for Rowan, offers a range of Nordic-inspired stylish accessories and home items that are based on traditional patterns with a contemporary twist and are small enough to be both easily portable and quick to complete.
The 29 designs range from easy to more challenging—so there's smoething for every knitter to enjoy. Projects include: multi-color hats, legwarmers, and scarves; cabled socks, scarves mittens, and hats; Fair Isle bags, socks, and vest; a cozy shrug, delicate stole, and simple cape, as well as patterned pillows, placemats, and a table runner—all made in natural yarns from Rowan that are cozy and comforting. And all with a clean contemporary Scandinavian look in a soft and beautiful color palette. Featuring beautiful photography and clearly-written patterns, backed up by special knitting tips and techniques, these rich-looking projects are very luxurious, but also practical and easy to make.
