Knit Like A Latvian: Accessories by Ieva Ozolina
Stranded colourwork knitting never goes out of fashion because the results are so beautiful. This is the third title in the "Knit Like a Latvian" series which looks at knitting patterns using traditional Latvian colourwork designs; this title features 40 patterns for gloves, hats, wraps and scarves.
Knitting has always played an important role in traditional Latvian culture: this collection captures the essence of these stunning folk patterns and shows how you can mix these traditional designs with your contemporary wardrobe.
Author Ieva Ozolina has designed a range of accessories featuring traditional Latvian motifs and design elements such as Latvian braids to create this beautiful collection. This book looks at the stories behind the design motifs which are steeped in folk tradition. The wide variety of projects and styles means that this book is suitable for less experienced knitters wanting to expand their techniques and experienced knitters wanting a bit of colourwork fun. The size of the smaller projects means they don't use very much yarn and they make very portable projects for when you're on the move. Small projects are also quick to knit and can make great knitted gifts.
