Knits from Northern Lands: 20 Projects Inspired by Traditional Knitting Techniques from the Scottish Isles to Scandanavia


Knits from Northern Lands is a beautifully curated collection of knitted projects by Jenny Fennell. Due out 2nd Nov 2021 from Interweave, it's 128 pages and will be available in paperback and ebook formats. 

The eARC provided for review contains an excerpt from the final release copy with several patterns included. The instructions and tutorials are clearly written and up to Interweave's high standard. The aesthetic is Northern European, with classic patterns inspired by Scandinavia, Ireland, and the Hebrides. The included patterns are very well photographed in color and include all the charts and written directions. Project tutorials include specific yarns with yardages as well as general yarn types so readers can make necessary substitutions.  

The projects are beautiful. They're well curated and several types of knitwear are represented.  The excerpt only includes 5 projects (several are repeated, probably a formatting glitch), but there seems to be several plus sized and unisex projects. Most of them are accessories and as far as I could see, there aren't any children's projects (the table of contents was not included in the excerpt). 

Four stars. 

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
