Norwegian Handknits:
 Heirloom Designs from Vesterheim Museum

by Sue Flanders and Janine Kosel

Vesterheim Museum in Decorah, Iowa, is one of the premiere centers for Norwegian-American heritage in the United States.  As such, it houses one of the country’s most extensive collections of the textiles and handknits that have woven ties between Norwegian communities in America and the Old World, between today’s culture and a rich past.  This book collects thirty patterns for handknits from Vesterheim—folk mittens, socks, scarves, hats, wristers, handbags, knapsacks, and sweaters—all inspired by traditional knits housed in the museum.
The book is filled with antique photos, immigrant stories, and even old Norwegian recipes!
