Ida Wirak Trettevik has been designing knitting patterns under the name of Witre Design since 2018. Her patterns are primarily for women, with some items for children and men. A Knitter’s Year contains a total of 30 patterns, many of them new and exclusively designed for this book.
Knitted clothing has become important for many people in a time of increasing focus on slow fashion and sustainability. Because we take extra good care of clothes we make for ourselves, choosing materials and colours we are fond of and want to wear for a long time. And because a person who knits knows how much work goes into every single piece of clothing. A Knitter’s Year is a result of this: the desire to knit your own wardrobe, with clothing for every season.
The book covers a whole year, and the photos show Ida and her family in well-known locations in Oslo and eventually at their new home on the island of Engeløya in Nordland, northern Norway.
