Back Cover Text:
Elsebeth Lavold designed
two sweaters for herself and for Anders Rydell, her husband and co-worker. These
designs, Isa and Max, and two sculptures (!), were the igniting sparks
for what was to become The Walk in the Park Collection.
The designer herself characterizes the collection in terms of “urban elegance”,
and both the front cover kimono-style jacket Harriet and the back cover
design Viveca support that impression very well. Elsebeth even claims
Viveca to be “probably the most sophisticated garment in the entire collection”.
The collection spans from the light, chic, and very feminine
Silky Wool sweater Lena to the warm and cozy
Angora shawl Annalisa, photographed on the
most mature model she’s used to date, over 200 years old. Other yarns used in
the collection are ChunkyAl, ClassicAl and
All of the designs may not be a walk in the park to knit - as usual in a
Designer’s Choice collection, there are both projects that are relatively easy
and projects for the more advanced knitter. But as you can imagine from the
title, chances are that old and new fans of Elsebeth Lavold will discover
designs that they find most suitable for a walk in the park, and have a lot of
fun knitting them.
