“So Warm!“, twined knitting made accessible to a wide audience by Carla Meijsen
Utrecht, 24 October, 2014 – So Warm! Twined Knitting is the first bilingual
book (English and Dutch) on twined knitting. With the publication of So
Warm!, Carla Meijsen spreads her enthusiasm and makes the
originally-Swedish technique and tradition accessible to a wide
audience, both in the Netherlands and worldwide.
Twined knitting is a Scandinavian knitting technique that is at least
400 years old, has many unique characteristics and offers a range of
decorative possibilities. Experienced knitters will certainly find a new
challenge in twined knitting, and the less-experienced can learn to
master the technique using the detailed instructions and many photos.
Carla Meijsen prepared for writing So Warm! by means of thorough
literature study and several study trips to Sweden, the birthplace of
this technique. Since 2008, she has written articles, designed twined
knitwear and given workshops on twined knitting in the Netherlands and
abroad. The experiences she gained while doing these activities proved
to be a thorough and also practical preparation for writing So Warm!
So Warm! contains over 30 patterns for wrist warmers, mittens, mitts,
gloves, hats, socks, leg warmers, boot toppers and accessories,
including some designs by Hanneke Bezem and Hilly van der Sluis. All
patterns have clear descriptions and detailed charts. Both traditional
and modern knitting methods, such as the Turkish cast-on, are
incorporated in the designs, based on a modern take on an old tradition.
