Traditional Danish Knitting
What do you do when you find there aren’t any books on your home country’s knitting heritage? If you’re Vivian Hoxbro – you make it your mission to write that missing book. Visiting her local museum and others, she diligently measured, photographed and drew the patterns of 89 historical sweaters. Six years later her book Traditional Danish Sweaters, including 200 patterns and 11 sweater designs, was complete. Zooming in live from Denmark Vivian will share her knowledge of Danish knitting history and inspire us to cast-on a piece of her heritage!
Bio: In 1985 I started my career as a designer employed by yarn-companies and soon became a free-lancer working for different yarn-companies and weekly magazines until 1999. I then started designing my own kit-collection and also wrote the small book on domino-knitting. That opened the world of traveling and teaching and I spent many years living out of a suitcase, traveling to the US 26 times and to many other countries also. I’ve been fortunate to be able to choose to do what I really love and have authored many designs and the books, Traditional Danish Sweaters and Vivian Hoxbro’s Knitting Handbook: 8 Schools of Modular Knitting.
