Norsk Strikkedesign: A Collection from Norway's Foremost Knitting Designers

Hardback
N.W. Damm & Son are proud to present a design book where the designers have had total freedom to create specially designed and unique garments. Included are twenty-two practical designs which show how fantastic and lovely garments can grow from something as simple as needles and skeins of yarn. Handknitting allows an unbounded freedom to create a completely personal expression through colors, embellishments, structure and styling. You would be surprised at how many objects can give birth to creativity: everything from an elegantly worked bridal gown or a postcard to nature's shifting light, grey stones and even rough logging roads. Norway has always been identified as a knitting nation, and its knitwear is regarded with wonder. Norwegian knitting is associated with traditional patterns and Norwegian motifs, which are readily recognised by the rest of the world. In keeping with tradition, classic Norwegian-spun wool yarns are used in this book. Knitting is the most Norwegian of all crafts, and the skill has been passed from mother to daughter. It is hoped that this book can give inspiration to the subject and that there will be many capable and creative knitting designers in the future.
