Gorgeous contemporary reconstructions and reinterpretations of the rich knitting traditions of Iceland.

The Textile Museum in Bl̦nduÌ_s in northern Iceland houses a unique and fascinating collection of handknit Icelandic mittens, dating back centuries. Now, Gu̡run Hannele Hentinnen, an expert with a degree in textile studies--and the owner of a yarn shop located in ReykjavÌ_k--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.

  • Beautiful, warm, wearable mittens and gloves in a variety of colors and styles
  • A master class in multi-color stranded knitting and in a wide range of stitches and techniques
  • Full-color photographs and step-by-step instructions to aid both novice and veteran mitten-knitters
