Back Cover Text:
In her seemingly never-ending flow of new ideas for designs, inspired by
Viking Age ornamentation, Elsebeth Lavold has produced yet another beautiful
Viking Knits Collection for her yarn line. The stunning front cover design
Solveig is the first ever Viking Knits dress she has made. On the back
cover, the exquisitely feminine Gudrid is an example of how a gifted and
technically skilled designer can make use of gussets and purl lines to produce a
very flattering shape in a most versatile and wearable garment.
In the book, you will find many more examples of how the “Queen of
Cable Patterns” incorporates her Scandinavian heritage from a millennium back
into modern knitwear in a wide variety of styles, yarns, and levels of
difficulty. Some of them are reworked versions of early Viking Knits designs, a
result of countless e-mails requesting them, others are entirely new.
And they are not only sweaters or jackets; with this book, your
needles and Silky Flammé, you can make the blanket
Verdandi, with mitered corners and a matching pillow. Or the practical
and attractive shoulder bag Greip, in Silky Wool.
The Third Viking Knits Collection is a true treat for old and new fans of
Elsebeth Lavold and her Viking Knits.
