About the Designer:
Mary Jane Mucklestone is a beloved knitwear designer, teacher, and author. She loves knitting with lots of color and she specializes in stranded knitting.
"Though the subject "Scandinavia" is ridiculously large to squeeze into one book, I've attempted to give you a nice cross section of pattern motifs, some very old and some decidedly contemporary, for Scandinavian design is always evolving. I hope you'll use this work as a jumping-off point for your own Scandinavian textile designs and discoveries." -Mary Jane Mucklestone
