Overview Rett på tråden

This book is for those who enjoy knitting, love colours and appreciate a simple and bold look.

The authors have taken inspiration from the carefree 60s with fashion icon Twiggy and artist Mondrian, and developed models that can be used for contemporary fashion.

You will find patterns for everything from skirts, dresses, jumpers, ponchos and accessories such as scarves, bags and purses to cushions and blankets. If you are a beginner, this is the book for you in terms of inspiration and models. You will find small and large models, some knitted using thick wool and some with thin wool.

This book is interspersed with flashbacks to fashion history from the 60s.
