Thoughtful Projects Inspired by Folk Traditions 

In Northern Knits Gifts, knitwear and textile designer Lucinda Guy continues her exploration of folk-knitting traditions in this colorful volume of small projects and accessories. You'll learn some of the traditional knitting techniques of Scandinavia, Estonia, Iceland, and the Faroe and Shetland islands, through modern interpretations of such heritage techniques as twined knitting, two-color knitting, lace techniques, damask, fair isle, embroidery, and rya (knotted knitting similar to shag carpet).

Accompanied by notes on the history and folk culture surrounding each technique, the projects in the book embrace the Danish notion of hygge--taking pleasure in comforting and cozy things
