Traditional embroidery, tapestry, and knitting motifs from Setesdal, in the south of Norway, are brilliantly reconceived in this fabulously fresh collection of knitting projects from Arne and Carlos. Through experience gained from working alongside Scandinavia's most respected knitters, Arne and Carlos seek to preserve tradition--with their own creative twist ! Over 30 patterns promise endless sources of delight and inspiration: men's and women's sweaters, pillows, hats, cowls, mittens, wrist and leg warmers, socks, blankets, and so much more! Includes gorgeous photographs, step-by-step instructions, and pattern diagrams.
