Availability: In stock

We consider this a must have knitting book. The Swedish Bohus Stickning period was a halcyon one in the history of knitting. Extraordinary designers were drawn to this cottage industry established by Austrian-born, Emma Jacobsen. Upon Emma's death, the collection of mesmerizing patterns were in danger of disappearing until Wendy Keele - making numerous trips to Sweden to meet with the remaining designers and with the founder's daughter - gathered together the original charts in this lovely book. Bohus patterns are unlike any other traditional motifs; they are more like landscapes or impressionistic paintings, realized with very fine wool. Try one of the caps to begin with, and see how gratifying this type of knitting can be. Softcover.
