Nordic Knits for Children


15 cosy knits for ages 3 to 9 by Monica Russel

Book Description

Over a dozen Scandi-inspired garments and accessories to make for boys and girls aged 3 to 9.

Norwegian knitting is loved for its combination of practicality, texture and minimalistic patterning. In this brand-new book by best-selling knitwear designer Monica Russel, there are over a dozen Nordic-inspired clothes and accessories for children that blend classic Scandi style with fun and practicality!

Beginning with a crash course in essential knitting techniques, dive straight into 15 patterns ranging from simple hats and a scarf to mittens, sweaters, dresses, bags and even a bear. The garments are divided into two, with half for ages 36 years and the other for ages 79 years, both age ranges that knitting patterns are rarely catered for. Designs for the clothes range from beautifully subtle and textured knits to fantastic patterned creations that feature motifs inspired by classic Nordic knitwear and the Scandinavian landscape.

Handy photos of the finished designs along with clear written instructions accompany every pattern. In addition, every knitted item with colourwork features a chart with corresponding written instructions, and advice is provided on cabled and textured knitting effects.

Whether you're knitting for a special occasion, a holiday, or for day-to-day wear, these are classic-mod fusions that your little ones will love.
