Norwegian Handknits collects thirty patterns for colorful folk mittens, socks, scarves, hats, wristers, handbags, knapsacks, and sweaters - all inspired by the traditional knits housed in the Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum in Decorah, Iowa. As the premiere center for Norwegian-American heritage in the United States, Vesterheim is home to one of the world's most extensive collections of the textiles and handknits made by Norwegian immigrants in america and their ancestors from the Old World, providing a link between today’s culture and a rich past. With an introduction reflecting on the history of Norwegian-style knitting and the stories behind the handknits that inspired the patterns, the book as at once a practical guide, a repository of cultural history, and a lovely look at the rich traditions knit into the American fabric. Vintage photographs, Norwegian folklore, and recipes accompany the patterns.
