Trafalgar Square Books is excited to announce the release of FAROE ISLAND KNITS by Svanhild Strøm and Marjun Biskopstø. The Faroe Islands, a far-flung archipelago lying halfway between Norway and Iceland, have a rich and longstanding knitting tradition—knitting was once one of their largest export industries, as well as a dearly-loved pastime. Now, inspired by this bountiful heritage, knit designer Svanhild Strøm and her mother Marjun Biskopstø have brought contemporary style and classic Faroese motifs together in a striking collection of all-new patterns.
52 traditional Faroese designs come to life on hats, sweaters, ponchos, slippers, and more, in a unique and eye-catching trove for any knitter with an interest in the twists, turns, and hidden treasures of Nordic knitting history.
This remarkable collection of knitting patterns is available from the TSB online bookstore, where shipping in the US is FREE.
