Subtitle: Heirloom Designs from Vesterheim Museum This book collects thirty patterns for handknits from Vesterheim Museum in Decorah, Iowa--folk mittens, socks, scarves, hats, wristers, handbags, knapsacks, and sweaters--all inspired by traditional knits housed in the museum. With an introduction reflecting on the history of Norwegian-style knitting and the stories behind the handknits that inspired the patterns, the book is at once a practical guide, a repository of cultural history, and a lovely look at one of the rich traditions knit into the American fabric. 144 pages. Hardcover.
