Contemporary style and fresh modern colours meet classic Norwegian knitting patterns in this magnificent collection.

Annichen Sibbern Bøhn's timeless and beloved Norwegian Knitting Patterns, first published in 1929, has been a guiding light and a source of inspiration for knitters around the world for decades—and now, working from Bøhn's original set of charts, knit designer Wenche Roald has created brilliant, vividly rejuvenated patterns for everything from wrist warmers and sweaters, to mittens and baby blankets, for both children and adults.

But that's not all: included in a slip pocket at the rear of the book is a fully translated facsimile edition of Annichen Sibbern Bøhn's 1929 classic. It includes the original foreword and introduction, and all of Bøhn's pattern charts and black-and-white photographs as they first appeared.

Dive in and explore as what's old is made new again in this stunning pattern compendium no knitter should be without!
