Katarina and Helena Rosen are Swedish sisters living in London. They started their knitwear company MillaMia in 2009. Their heritage heavily influences the MillaMia style, which is based on the distinctive Swedish aesthetic - clean and contemporary yet with a fun, bright edge. With a background in fashion their designs are not constrained by conventional knitting or what has gone before.
This inspiring new book from the team behind MillaMia knitwear is packed with projects to take you through the wintertime. As the seasons change from cool, crisp autumn to the cold and dark of winter, Scandinavians are particularly good at easing the transition with clothing, interiors and food that bring warmth and light. From traditional Scandinavian designs through to some more unconventional projects, there is plenty on offer. The designs have been graded to the skill level, from beginner through to experienced, and mostly feature knitwear, however there are some gorgeous home decorations and Christmas ideas on offer too. The beautiful photos show off the designs and at the end there are several delicious Swedish recipes to tempt you as you knit. ~ Liz Robinson
