Portugese Style of Knitting: History, Tradition
Portuguese Style of Knitting includes a brief history of Portugal and its crafts of knitting and spinning. Andrea's travel photos open a window on the colorful world of Portugal. Detailed images and explanations offer knitters the opportunity to practice this style of knittingâ€”a style that, once mastered, is easy on the hands and relaxing.
Andrea also offers ten garment patterns that she designed specifically to practice different aspects of Portuguese-style knitting. These are inspired by traditional garments as well as the richly patterned environment of Portugal.
