With her brand Amimono Helga Isager has since 2005 been part of renewing knitting both as a craft and as a fashion phenomenon. Her ability to place traditional knitting techniques in a contemporary context paired with her curious exploration of the never ending possibilities hidden in a ball of yarn and a set of knitting needles, has evoked a response particularly with the younger audience.
The newest book by Helga Isager is full of beautiful and inspirational knits including some beautiful pieces with embroidery incoporated into the knitting . The book has 10 patterns for women designs: 1 jacket, 1 cardigan, 1 dress, 4 sweaters, 1 blouse, 1 hat and 1 scarf.
"All the patterns in this book can stand alone, but by adding embroidery or weaving youcan change the look significantly. Embroidery with many strands of yarn can add analmost three-dimensional finish and you can renew your sweater – even long after it isfinished – by adding a new colour or by using a completely different material."
We have some beautiful kits available for the Snowy Scarf
and Cloudy Sweater
featured in the book.
