Iceland Knits|50 Patterns From The Icelandic Knitting Grassroots
The book Iceland Knits includes about 50 knitting and crocheting patterns (mainly knitting patterns) designed by 20 different Icelandic knitters – the Icelandic knitting grassroots. The knitters come from all over Iceland, range from 25 – 90 years in age, and have quite varying knitting experience. The book includes both patterns and some text about each knitter, based on Erla´s interviews with them.

The knitting tradition in Iceland is quite strong, and many of the patterns in the book are quite traditional ones – most of them with a „twist" though. Many of the pieces are knitted with the Icelandic Lopi wool, but it can be substituted with yarn of the same weight.

Everybody seems to be knitting and designing their own stuff in Iceland now.... In this book we tried to capture some of the „knitting energy" Iceland is experiencing – and we are very happy with the results, we hope you love it as much as we do Smile ! Take a look at the photos and read more about the patterns and the knitters in our Flickr album (we are working on the English translation there!).

The book was first published in Icelandic in November 2009, and soon became a best-seller.
