Take a trip to Norway -- without ever setting down your needles! Let Nina Granlund Sæther guide you through Norway's mountains, rivers, and countryside as you delve into 400 years of Scandinavian knitting history. Reconstructed from historical sources or drawn directly from the author's familiarity with Norwegian pattern knitting, more than 40 textile treasures are collected here, from the well-loved Selbu mittens to lesser-known delights whose origins have been carefully traced. Resting on a foundation of research, with photographs by Guri Pfeifer and pattern charts, Mittens from Around Norway is a combination of design inspiration and historical reference that belongs on every knitter's bookshelf.
