Um belíssimo livro norueguês as luvas da região de Selbu e os seus belíssimos padrões, uma tradição que remonta aos meados do século XIX. 

Anne Bårdsgård: Selbuvotter
Publicado em 2016. 296 páginas. Em Norueguês.


The book begins with a thoroughly researched and well illustrated account of the rich history of the instantly recognisable Selbuvotter patterns and their important place in the society and economy of the Selbu region. Very unusually we’re able to attribute the first of these mittens to Marit Guldseth, who began making them in 1856, starting a tradition that would spread around the world. If you're interested in learning more about the history, without learning to read Norwegian, I've been enjoying this video series by vlogger Patricia Anne.

Page upon page of colourwork charts are included, broken down by inspiration, from Elk to coffee beans. There are also several complete patterns for gloves and mittens from the museum collection, many of which include a short biography of the original maker.

This book is in Norwegian but the beautiful photographs and charts will speak to knitters all over the world and the patterns for mittens and gloves are presented in a highly visual format.
