Description
Inspired by the sublime, subtle tones of wintry northern landscapes, Shades of Winter offers more than 35 projects that will give you an inside look into the natural beauty of pure undyed wool amidst a Scandinavian winter’s snow crystals and cold.

These gorgeous garments range from tops, sweaters, dresses, and coats to hats, mittens, scarves, and shawls and evoke wool’s warmth and softness in many different patterns and textures. Organized by the natural tones of the yarns, these fine woolens are visually stunning and hold the promise of doing no environmental harm. You'll be enchanted by the possibilities: garments ranging from simple garter and stockinette to more elaborate cables, bobbles, texture, and lace patterns.

With over 35 dreamlike, knitted wool designs using stunning techniques captured with captivating, artful photography, Shades of Winter will have you feeling like you're in a modern fairy tale.

Gorgeous Book Review by Candi

This book is a trip to the Nordic icelands--gorgeous, breathtaking photos. And I want to make nearly every project in the book. The designs are modern classics. You will love them now and wear them for years. My favorite book of the year!
