Book Description

Knit a glorious Moomin sock collection for the whole family with 29 unique, intricately-designed Fair Isle sock patterns, charts included.

Inspired by Tove Jansson’s Moomin books, each pattern is a loving homage to Jansson’s beloved characters, brought to life by the artistry of top Finnish knitwear designers.

You’re invited on an enchanting knitting adventure deep into the heart of Moominvalley, which will capture your heart and spark your creativity. Many of the characters beloved by readers are beautifully represented in these designs. You’ll find practical guidance on finding the perfect fit for every member of your family, and detailed instructions on checking your tension ensure that you create the perfect knits every time.

Each of the delightful patterns tells its own Moomin tale:

  • ‘The Hemulen Collecting Flowers’ pattern whisks the reader away on a floral adventure;
  • The ‘Dancing in the Rain' socks transports them to a playful and carefree moment in Moominvalley;
  • ‘Happy Sniff’ socks capture Sniff's contentment and joy;
  • ‘The Moomin House’ design invites knitters into the cozy embrace of the Moomin household itself: agreeable Moomintroll, pensive Moominpappa, calm, caring Moominmamma, timid Sniff, and fearless Little My;
  • When it's time to unwind, let the ‘Zzzz Time for a Snooze’ pattern lull you into a state of tranquillity!

Whether you're curled up with a well-loved copy of Finn Family Moomintroll, or exploring the great wide world, these socks will keep you and your family cozy and warm.

About the Author

About Moomin

The Moomins are the central characters in a series of books and comic strips by Swedish-speaking Finn Tove Jansson (19142001), a painter, illustrator and writer. The Moomins are a family of fantastical white, roundish, hippo-like characters, with large snouts.

After the first Moomin story published in 1945, Tove Jansson went on to write another eight books, four picture books and numerous comic strip stories about the Moomins. The Moomins have inspired numerous television series, films and theme parks.
