Nordic Knits for Children

by Monica Russel

Norwegian knitting is loved for its combination of practicality, texture and traditional patterning. In this brand-new book by best-selling knitwear designer and author Monica Russel, there are 15 Nordic-inspired clothes and accessories for children that blend classic Scandi style with fun and functionality!

Beginning with a crash course in essential knitting techniques, create stylish hats, mittens, sweaters, dresses and even a loveable bear in a distinctive Fair Isle design. The garments are designed for children aged 3 to 9 years, with styles ranging from beautifully subtle and textured knits to patterned creations with motifs inspired by classic Nordic knitwear and the Scandinavian landscape.

There are numerous photos of the finished designs, clear written instructions, and every knitted item with colourwork includes a chart with corresponding written instructions.

Whether you're knitting for a special occasion, a holiday, or for day-to-day wear, these are fuss-free patterns that will have you knitting, classic-mod makes for your little one all year round.
