Complementing the uncomplicated pattern instructions and Björgvin Hilmarsson’s beautiful photography of the pattern models and breathtaking landscapes, Satu’s engaging texts cover topics such as the history of Iceland’s ‘national dress’, the day-to-day lives of sheep farmers, including when the sheep are shorn, and how the different types of yarn are produced. Also included is a pattern for the ‘Hildur’ sweater, as featured in Satu’s titular bestselling crime novel. A vibrant and convivial knitting guide for the Nordic knitwear fan!
