Scan­di­na­vian win­ter treats

The Knitter - - Loves -

At this time of year, we love to knit up cosy ac­ces­sories - as gifts for the forth­com­ing fes­tive sea­son, or as quick-knit treats for our­selves. For in­spi­ra­tion, and for the chance to try out yarns which may be un­fa­mil­iar, take a look at Karie Wester­mann’s new e-book.

It’s called Hygge, af­ter the Scan­di­na­vian con­cept of com­fort and cosi­ness. Karie’s pat­terns use wool from Pirkkalanka in Fin­land and Ull­cen­trum in Swe­den, which are avail­able in the UK through Mid­win­ter Yarns.

De­signs in­clude a pair of warm fin­ger­less mitts, called ‘Skov­tur’, the smart ‘Fiku’ shawl worked in 3ply yarn, and a slouchy hat with a sim­ple lace pat­tern and a large pom­pom. Pat­terns are avail­able to down­load in­di­vid­u­ally, or as an en­tire col­lec­tion for £13.80. http://bit.ly/kariehygge
