Traditional Knitting Patterns
from Scandinavia, the British Isles, France, Italy and other European countries
by James Norbury

This is Dover's reprint of the original 1962 edition.  Great historical research! 

In this book are over 260 different patterns and designs from the Arabic, Spanish, German, Austrian, Dutch, and Irish traditions as well as the areas mentioned above. If you enjoy seeing where our knitting traditions came from, you will love this book.  

Most color motifs are charted, while line-by-line instructions are provided for lace and textured patterns. Repeats are listed. Every pattern is accompanied with a black & white photograph showing a completed swatch. 

The patterns are divided by origin, and every different nationality is accompanied by a short historical description of the knitting tradition.   Some of the knitting terms, language, and abbreviations are antiquated, so this book is best suited for those with some pattern reading experience.
