Icelandic Mittens by Guðrún Hannele Henttinen
Hardcover, 272 pages
Text in English
75 colour photos, 75 charts, 6 illustrations


Gorgeous contemporary reconstructions and reinterpretations of the rich knitting traditions of Iceland. Extra photographs are from Amanda's visit to the museum a few years ago. 

The Textile Museum in Blönduós in northern Iceland houses a unique and fascinating collection of handknit Icelandic mittens, dating back centuries. Now, Guðrun Hannele Hentinnen, an expert with a degree in textile studies—and the owner of a yarn shop located in Reykjavík—has reconstructed patterns and charts based on those historical examples, and breathed new life into a stunning selection of mittens and gloves for the modern knitter.
