Icelandic Mittens: 25 Traditional Patterns Reimagined is a beautiful hardcover book full of gorgeous contemporary reconstructions and reinterpretations of the rich knitting traditions of Iceland.
The Textile Museum in Blönduós in northern Iceland houses a unique and fascinating collection of handknit Icelandic mittens, dating back centuries. Now, Guðrun Hannele Hentinnen, an expert with a degree in textile studies—and the owner of a yarn shop located in Reykjavík—has reconstructed patterns and charts based on those historical examples, and breathed new life into a stunning selection of mittens and gloves for the modern knitter.
