Take a trip to Norway - without ever setting down your needles! Let Nina Granlund Sæther guide you through Norway's mountains, rivers, and countryside as you delve into 400 years of Scandinavian knitting history.
Reconstructed from historical sources or drawn directly from the author's familiarity with Norwegian pattern knitting, more than 40 textile treasures are collected here, from the well-loved Selbu mittens, to lesser-known delights whose fascinating origins have been carefully traced. Resting on a foundation of formidable research, with stunning photographs by Guri Pfeifer and clear, helpful pattern charts, Mittens from Norway is a brilliant combination of design inspiration and historical reference that belongs on every knitter's bookshelf.

If you love traditional patterns you will love this book. Who does not like mittens? They are also a relatively quick knit for gifts. There is almost a pattern a week if you knit them all! --Yarnsandfabrics.co.ukAbout the Author:
Nina Granlund Sæther grew up in Asker, Norway, just outside Oslo. Her love and interest for knitting, sewing, embroidery and crochet started before going to school. She is educated as a craft teacher, and worked for a short time in high school. In 1987 she started her career as a journalist in Norsk Husflid, a Norwegian Arts and Crafts Magazine. Today she works as an editor in chief in Hus & Bolig, a magazine about houses and property. In 2013 she was honoured for her work by The Norwegian Specialised Press Association.
Sæther has written several books about arts and crafts, and makes also designs for some Norwegian magazines. Making Cushions and Pillows is her first book published outside Norway. She is creating original and visually striking craft in a Scandinavian-influenced tradition.
