Description


Breathe new life into Norwegian tradition with one of Norway's hottest knit designers.

Birger Berge is a study in apparent contradictions: he's a trained historian ... and an Instagram star--a trend-setting contemporary knitter ... who's deeply passionate about traditional patterns and their origins. Berge learned to knit as a child from his mother and grandmother, and for him handcrafts have become a source of comfort and creative energy, and a well of endless inspiration. Now, he combines his own distinctly modern style, a love of contrasts and dynamic color combinations, and the classic beauty of Norwegian patterning in a collection of gorgeous knitwear designs freshly adapted for an American knitting audience.

  • Eye-catching and varied knitting projects, including sweaters, cardigans, scarves, hats, mittens, and home d cor and accessories
  • Striking, wearable garments for women and men, featuring timeless motifs in vivid colors and compelling combinations
  • Beautiful full-color photographs, easy-to-read charts--and Birger Berge's characteristic attention to detail and flair for composition, indulged to the fullest
