Imported from Norway. A treasure-trove of knitting pattern and cultural history. The author unravels the history of traditional knitting, revealed by investigations in a pile of knitted rags left behind in storage bins of a 'shoddy' factory. Everyday Knitting reveals the creativity in the everyday life of Scandinavian knitters, a treasure of ideas and inspiration for any serious knitter's or cultural historian's library. Diagrams and patterns give advice on developing the reader's own patterns from traditional motifs. Includes a selection of the earliest knitting patterns from Sandnes Woolen Mill.
