Projects include: multi-color hats, legwarmers, and scarves; cabled socks, scarves mittens, and hats; Fair Isle bags, socks, and vest; a cozy shrug, delicate stole, and simple cape, as well as patterned pillows, placemats, and a table runner--all made in natural yarns from Rowan that are cozy and comforting. And all with a clean contemporary Scandinavian look in a soft and beautiful color palette. Featuring beautiful photography and clearly-written patterns, backed up by special knitting tips and techniques, these rich-looking projects are very luxurious, but also practical and easy to make.
