Squares, Stripes & Lice
25 Traditional Knitting Designs from Bergen, Norway,
by Hanne Dale & Siri Angela Gamborg,
edited by Ann Kristin Ramstrøm.
Based on museum samples with strikingly distinctive features (done in two colors or relief stitches, with small easy-to-work repeats and a dynamic sense of geometry), this collection is filled with pullovers, cardigans, accessories, pillows and more, for children and adults. These bold, retro designs offer flattering contemporary shaping and cut. Includes historical photographs from Salhus Tricotagefabrik, one of the oldest textile factories in Norway.
