Synopsis:Swedish Handknits is a collection of patterns for sweaters, hats, scarves, mittens, headbands, and bags, all inspired by the historic textiles housed at the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Institute was the first to host the successful Bohus knitting exhibit in America, so it's fitting that their world-class textile collection provides the inspiration for these designs. As in the authors' Norwegian Handknits, vintage photographs of Swedish immigrants, recipes, and photos of the artifacts that inspired the designs will be included, along with a short history of knitting in Sweden. Bohus, twined knitting, and Swedish mittens are some of the many techniques featured in the book.
From the Back Cover:Swedish Handknits: A Collection of Heirloom Designs has as many layers as a warm bed on a cold winter’s night. In this group of patterns, the follow-up to Norwegian Handknits: Heirloom Designs from Vesterheim Museum, you’ll be impressed by the variety of knitting techniques and styles gathering numerous Swedish textile traditions under one cover. Featuring patterns inspired by these traditions and by the historic textiles housed at the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis, Minnesota, this book also includes personal histories, recipes, and bits of Swedish folklore and culture. You can explore regional knitting traditions, such as the Swedish Mittens made on the Island of Gotland, twinned knitting from the Darlana area of Sweden, and the more famous Swedish knitting traditions of the Bohus knitting cooperative. Melding tradition and modern innovation, the projects in Swedish Handknits honor the handiwork of artists and artisans of years past while perpetuating their creativity and dedication.
