Publisher's Description

Knitters of all skill levels will find this volume an excellent source of design inspiration as well as a guide to techniques and patterns from around the world. In addition to familiar traditions—those of Shetland, Fair Isle, Faroe, and Aran—it features the lesser-known styles of Norway, Greece, Turkey, and other countries.
Historic plates, photographs, diagrams, and pattern charts illustrate this guide. Each chapter offers tips on special techniques, stitch patterns, and examples of traditional work. Complete instructions for thirteen garments include patterns for an Austrian waistcoat, an Estonian stole, an Icelandic sweater, a Shetland shawl, and a Swedish cap.
