Maja's Swedish Mittens: Over 35 Imaginative Patterns to Knit
Author: Maja Karlsson
Few things are as cozy on a cool day as having a pair of warm mittens all your own, and there’s a little something special about having knitted them yourself! Knitting mittens is fun and fast; the journey from inspiration to beautiful, eye-catching handmade mittens goes by all too quickly. Maja Karlsson, author of Traditional Swedish Knitting Patterns, is back with over 30 patterns for mittens of all kinds―gusseted, cuffed, ribbed, flip-top, and more. Choose a beautifully intricate classic Swedish design or a quick fun motif inspired by the natural world; work a thick, cozy pair with multi-stranded knitting or light, lacy mittens in a single color. With easy-to-follow charts and gorgeous full-color photography, patterns suited for varying skill levels, and a section with tips and explanations to help the less experienced find their way, this lovely collection is perfect for anyone looking to master the art of knitting mittens.
Maja Karlsson lives in the small cozy town of Arvika, Sweden, in a charming house built in the 1920s. At the top is a floral studio where she spends a large part of her day. She is a freelance knitter and designer, writer, blogger, photographer, lecturer, and teacher, and also operates her own online yarn store named Maja Manufaktur.
