I was surprised at how good this book was and at such a low price. I especially liked its big format and layout of course as the other reviewer says it doesn't have all the information but so far I haven't seen one knitting book that does. And that is the reason we buy so many books. It has 11 chapters, Chapter 1 origins of knitting in Scandinavia, 2nd Types of knitting traditionally used in Scandinavia, 3rd Knitting techniques from Scandinavia, 4th Norwegian Knitting, 5th Swedish knitting, 6th Danish knitting, 7th The North Atlantic islands Faeroe and Iceland, 8th Jerseys, 9th Gloves and mittens, 10th Stockings, 11th Caps. There is also a glossary of English and Scandinavian knitting terms, Knitting needle sizes, further reading and an index. It has a few pages of colored photographs of traditional Scandinavian sweaters, caps, and samples of colorwork.It has also more pictures in black and white. So I would recommend this book very highly.
