Summary
"The Textile Museum in Blönduós, located in northern Iceland, houses a unique and fascinating collection of hand-knitted Icelandic mittens, dating back centuries. Drawn by the weight of history and the wealth of traditional motifs on display in their beautifully preserved one-of-a-kind catalog, Guðrún Hannele Henttinen, an expert with a degree in textile studies -- and the owner of a yarn shop in Reykjavík -- has reconstructed patterns and charts based on those historical examples, and breathed new life into a stunning selection of mittens and gloves for the modern knitter. In a variety of colors and style, constituting a master class in multi-color stranded knitting and in a wide range of stitches and techniques, this collection doubles as a design showcase and inspirational guide to these overlooked gems of Nordic knit tradition" -- Back cover
