This knitting book features patterns, techniques and inspirations from across the globe for eighteen cozy, stylish, and timeless sweaters.
Knitting Sweaters from Around the World celebrates classic styles and centuries-old knitting traditions from Europe, Asia and the Americas. These designs are presented with patterns by well-known contemporary designers like Beth Brown-Reinsel, Melissa Leapman, Hv©lv®ne Magnv?sson, Candace Eisner Strick, and many others. After an introduction detailing the history of sweater knitting, each design begins with a history of the techniques and patterns it uses.
Some of the designs in this book, such as the Cowichan-inspired Swallows and Ivy Wrap Cardigan, the Men's Fair Isle pullover, and the Eriskay Gansey, are very traditional garments, allowing you to try the same stitches and techniques that have been passed down for generations. Other sweaters, such as the Bulgarian Roses Intarsia Cardigan and the Turkish Delight Sweater, are modern creations inspired by patterns and stitches used in a particular country or region.
