Northern Knits Gifts

Thoughtful projects inspired by folk traditions.

In Northern Knits Gifts, the follow up to Northern Knits, Lucinda continues her exploration of folk-knitting traditions. This colourful volume has a range of 20 small projects and accessories including hats for all the family, socks, slippers, mittens and scarves, a child’s blanket, a doll, a cushion and even a quirky chicken doorstop. With Northern Knits Gifts you’ll learn to embrace the unique Scandinavian notion of hygge — taking pleasure in and sharing beautifully designed every day things with family and close friends.

There are thumbnail sketches of the history and folk culture surrounding each project as well as timeless motifs and descriptions of traditional Nordic woollen yarns. Featured techniques include Fair Isle, lace, twined knitting, damask, ‘rya’ and embroidery.
