Radical patterns for creative knitters by Anna Bauer

Pre-order
Book Description

A collection of bright, bold and beautiful knitting patterns based on Honsestrikk, a Danish knitting movement from the 1970s which broke away from traditional knitting rules.

Honsestrikk, which loosely translates as 'chicken stitch', was influenced by the radical social and political movements of the time, including the women's rights movement. Instead of the more traditional Fair Isle colourwork techniques, Honsestrikk knitting featured political messages and motifs, tones clashed and borders butted up against each other in a riot of colour and pattern.

Honsestrikk is about knitting in a freer style so you have the freedom to express yourself and create truly unique, personalized garments and accessories.

Designer Anna Bauer has been inspired by the Honsestrikk movement to create this collection of basic designs and patterns so you can choose your own combinations and create and knit your own free, radical knits.
