Traditional Nordic patterns can be seen everywhere, from the catwalk to the high street. In this book from new knit designer Eline Oftedal, four iconic Norwegian knitting patterns - Marius, Voss, Setesdal and Fana - are given new shapes and forms. Includes stories about the inspiration and traditions behind each of the patterns, charting their origins and exploring what it is about these patterns that so appeals to knitters all over the world.
