My life's work (feels that way) – now shipping
Introducing The Nordic Knitting Primer. 20 patterns. Step-by-step photo tutorials. Tips and tricks.
Here's my first book! Do you love the timeless look of Scandinavian knitting? Have you ever wanted to create your own colorful Nordic sweaters, hats, mittens and accessories? I lovingly designed and wrote The Nordic Knitting Primer to help you learn how.
I filled The Nordic Knitting Primer with a lifetime of Scandinavian colorwork tips, tricks, and techniques—all with a single goal: to help knitters of all levels fall in love with colorwork knitting.
With chapters organized sequentially by skill level, and hundreds of step-by-step tutorial photos, you could literally learn colorwork knitting skill-by-skill and project-by-project by starting at the beginning and knitting your way through this book.
I'm a big believer in learning to knit (or improving your skills) by making things you love. So this book is packed with 20 must-knit projects for knitters of all skill levels to make, wear, or give away. I designed these projects to look hard, but knit up easily. The effort-to-reward ratio is fantastic!
This was a family project. Created during the 2020 pandemic, The Nordic Knitting Primer was lovingly photographed, illustrated, modeled, edited, and brought to life by me and my loved ones. Thanks everybody for helping!
