Taking inspiration from the Scandinavian, Nordic and Celtic regions, this book contains 20 charming and modern projects, based on traditional knitting styles and techniques.

Exploring the iconic colourwork of Fair Isle or Scandinavia, or the chunky cables of Aran knitting, the intricacies of Shetland lace knitting or the cosiness of a Guernsey style pillowcase, these are knitwear items that are made to last.

Jenny shares the inspiration and history behind each thoughtful project, as well as easy-to-follow patterns, colourwork charts, and atmospheric photography. She uses a serene and calming colour palette which, combined with beautiful soft yarns and stylish designs, makes for a collection of highly desirable items including garments and home accessories.

Whether you're a relative beginner or already an experienced knitter, with her guidance, you'll soon be creating truly special and one-of-a-kind pieces that can be cherished for generations.

This is a beautifully presented book with wonderful wintery photography which will make you want to wrap yourself up in a blanket, sipping hot chocolate and knitting serenely for the evening.

The patterns are clear, concise and easy to follow, especially with the accompanying charts. A good mix for all abilities and there isn't one pattern that I wouldn't knit! As a quick test I knitted up the Comforting Cables Fingerless Mitts and they came out wonderfully! A great little stash buster.

The instructions are very clear and easy to read. The projects range from simple and easy to hard so you can challenge yourself. The images add to the enjoyment of the book and make you feel cosy and ready to get knitting. Overall a great and amazing book I can't wait to start knitting from it.
