Kristin Drysdale, founder of Scandiwork, shares her innovative and approachable method for mastering colorwork knitting. With a family heritage in Denmark and Norway, Kristin is an expert in traditional Scandinavian knitting and has been teaching colorwork to beginners for years. Kristin’s clear techniques make it easy for knitters of all levels to create the colorful designs of their dreams. Her unique, friendly instructions talk readers through each step, so achieving impressive results is fun and foolproof.

Beginners won’t believe how easy it is to knit up gorgeous patterned mittens, slippers and hats. More advanced knitters will love creating beautifully ornate yoke sweaters with simple execution. Readers can create snowflakes, swirls, stars and other creative motifs, along with beautiful geometric designs. Plus knitting with multiple yarns creates a warmer knit fabric, for high-quality garments and accessories to gift or wear all winter long. With a wide range of sizes for adults and patterns for little ones, the whole family can enjoy the trendy yet timeless Scandinavian look.
