Arctic Knitting – Luonnon lumoa ja kuvioneulontaa is a stunning knitting book that lets you feel the magic of Lapland’s seasons in 20 timeless knitting patterns – from the fireworks of russet colours to the depths of chaotic hues, and from the snowy glow of a crisp spring to the intoxicating glow of a nightless night. Indulging in Northern Finland’s soothing mountain landscapes, common straights and winter-bleached vistas, you’ll easily find your new favourites.
You can tackle grounding according to your skill level: knit a collar and a hat for an easier challenge, create a warming vest and shawl from yarn, or use needles to make fascinating knitted sweaters. Eight different sizes ensure that the patterns are suitable for everyone you love, with children getting their own shirt designs in addition to adults. There’s also a wealth of colour knowledge, from the symphonies of natural tones to the harmonies of counter-colours. Pick up professional tips to personalise your knitwear – by turning your gaze to the magical forest and the enchanting skyline!
Annika Konttaniemi, who has settled in Rovaniemi, is an outdoor-loving Master of Arts, for whom the nature of the Arctic and the changing colour palette with the seasons are a source of endless knitting inspiration.
