Ethnic Knitting Exploration: Lithuania, Iceland and Ireland, Donna Druchunas.
Ethnic Knitting Exploration teaches you how to design sweaters in yoke, raglan, and saddle-shoulder shapes, working with patterning ideas and techniques from Lithuania (color), Iceland (color), and Ireland (cables and texture). The book has recipes, instead of patterns, so you can work to your own gauge and choose your own pattern stitches and colors. It provides three ways for you to design each project: a visual plan, a spreadsheet, and detailed instructions. Each chapter also includes historical notes and knitting charts.
