Knitting with Icelandic Wool contains everything you need to know about Icelandic wool and knitting in Iceland. The book comprises 65 patterns for women, men and children chosen in collaboration with Iceland’s largest wool manufacturer, Ístex.

The book mainly features the classic Icelandic lopi sweater and other popular garments, but there are also patterns for smaller projects such as woolly hats, socks, mittens and scarves. The history of knitting in Iceland, from its origins to the present day, is told with an emphasis on the emergence of the Icelandic lopi sweater, as well as the growth of the Icelandic wool industry.

Knitting with Icelandic Wool is a great book for knitters looking for exciting patterns knitted in Icelandic wool, and an informative and entertaining resource for all who have an interest in the history of handicrafts.
