It seems that suddenly everyone wants to be Scandinavian, and to "hygge" (pronounced hue-guh) which means "a sublime state of cosiness" felt when you are with friends or loved ones. It can be enhanced by the addition of a log fire, a sweet treat and a cozy knit . So spread the love, and keep things cozy, by knitting yourself--or your family--a warm and beautiful sweater, hat, gloves, or socks, with a Scandi feel.

From Shetland to the Faroe Islands, Norway and beyond, there is a shared tradition of knitting intricate patterns in colors that combine and contrast. Whether you have been inspired by watching Danish dramas or you are fascinated by the intricate geometric patterns of Fair Isle, there are designs here that will make you want to pick up your needles and get knitting. Garments include a tank top with a vintage feel, an adorable cardigan for a baby, and a Nordic-style yoked sweater. For the home, there's a cafetiere cozy, a chunky pillow cover, and more. There's also a baby blanket that would make a perfect gift, and a lined cover for your e-reader. With full color charts for all patterns, and a techniques section to explain essential Fair-Isle knitting skills, you will have everything you need to know. (Previously published as Fair Isle and Nordic Knits.)

Sadly, I didn’t like a single pattern in this book.
