More than just a history book or a handicraft manual, Portuguese Knitting is a trip to the Portuguese heritage of woolcraft. It discovers knitting memories of the past, traditional patterns and techniques that are brought up to date in the form of beautiful modern pieces such as socks, hats, shawls, cowls, pot holders and leggings. Containing previously unpublished images of great historical importance, this is a fundamental work in the history of Portuguese woolcraft.
Easy-to-follow instructions and clear illustrations allow beginners or more experienced knitter to recreate historical pieces in an original, contemporary and always Portuguese way. You can make these pieces as they are shown, or use other colours to create your own unique and original gifts.
