Format: Hardcover
This book is a combination of two parts -- historical sweaters and contemporary designs.

Part One consists of 27 historical Swedish sweaters, most knitted in the mid 19th century. The color photographs are beautiful and in most cases charts of the design elements are included. An experienced knitter would be able to construct a pattern for most of these sweaters using the charts given.

Part Two contains 14 patterns for contemprary designs, based on the historical sweaters. The designs are very nice and most are knitted with sportweight or finer yarn.

...unlike most of the knitting books I own, this one I pick up when I want to be thrilled with the workmanship of our ancestors. The old swedish sweaters might be moth-eaten but the handiwork is shown in some detail.I haven't tried any of the sweaters -- the instructions seem on the difficult side.A shame that this is out of print, as would make a nice gift.

Format: Hardcover
This book is divided into two section, a historical sweater section that consist of 27 historical items with charts for the colourwork and a somewhat dated section of modern designs. This is definitely a beautiful resource to have in your library to keep coming back and forth to for inspirations.

This is a great example of contempory interpretations of historical sweater designs. Nice layout. Good explanations of the traditional design and the thought process the designer used in the interpretation process. Beautiful photography.
