Norwegian Knits with a Twist
Socks, Sweaters, Mittens, Hats, Pillows, Blankets & a Whole Lot More
by Arne & Carlos

Arne & Carlos derived the inspiration for this book from numerous Setesdal patterns. Many were found in the attics of old houses, in books, on postcards, and from old knitting patterns. In their newest book, Norwegian Knits with a Twist, you will find 33 patterns for gorgeous sweaters in bright colors, to suit both men and women. Ideas for accessories such as mittens, hats, wrist warmers, stockings, small and large pillows, teddy bears and much more. The levels of difficulty vary from completely easy patterns to those for more experienced knitters. Through experience gained from working alongside Scandinavia's most respected knitters, many of whom still use centuries-old techniques, Arne & Carlos seek to preserve tradition while creating pieces that are fresh and modern. The 33 patterns in this book have been inspired by Setesdal’s cultural heritage but were designed with a little twist.

Arne Nerjordet and Carlos Zachrison, Norwegian and Swedish respectively, established Arne & Carlos, a clothing design company, in 2002. Drawing on their traditional Scandinavian influences and their natural environment, they create original and visually striking knitwear. Their creative base is in the Valdres region of Norway, north of Oslo.
