Norwegian Handknits




Subtitle: Heirloom Designs from Vesterheim Museum This book collects thirty patterns for handknits from Vesterheim Museum in Decorah, Iowa–folk mittens, socks, scarves, hats, wristers, handbags, knapsacks, and sweaters–all inspired by traditional knits housed in the museum. With an introduction reflecting on the history of Norwegian-style knitting and the stories behind the handknits that inspired the patterns, the book is at once a practical guide, a repository of cultural history, and a lovely look at one of the rich traditions knit into the American fabric. 144 pages. Hardcover.
