This week’s CRAFT Pattern Podcast is the Knit Headbands of Norway, an excerpt from the new book, Ethnic Knitting Discovery: The Netherlands, Norway, Denmark and The Andes by Donna Druchunas. I love Donna’s new book because she gives us the history behind certain knitting patterns and motifs that are created by certain countries. This easy to knit headband shows you three pattern motifs from Norway you can knit: the Saint Andrew’s Cross, Snowflake, and Diamonds. As you know with my previous posts this summer on Travel with Craft Books (here and here), we are continuing this theme with this book, but with a greater sense of historical technique. It’s so fascinating to read how certain patterns and techniques develop in certain areas based on climate and think of how the pass orally through families and towns for generations. More on this book on Monday where CRAFT is a part of the Ethnic Knitting Discovery Blog Book Tour and I’ll be talking with Donna more about this fantastic book.
