Klompelompe's Winter Children

This book contains patterns for a number of lightweight garments that children can wear during autumn and winter seasons. The garments are knitted using fine Merino wool and cotton-blend yarn, which means that they are neither itchy nor too warm.

Here you will find more than 40 completely new KlompeLOMPE garments for babies and children, boys and girls; quick garments such as hats and socks, and lovely simple cardigans and jumpers. Several of these items of clothing go well together. Why not knit a romper for your youngest and a matching dress for her big sister? Some of the patterns also have doll versions. Now both your son and his teddy can have a David cardigan.

Hanne Andreassen Hjelmås and Torunn Steinsland are the women behind online store and Instagram profile KlompeLOMPE. They design the garments and develop the patterns together, and Hanne takes all the pictures. Hanne and Torunn have previously had four bestselling knitting books published in the KlompeLOMPE series. 250,000 copies of the books have been printed in total by publisher J.M. Stenersen Forlag.

KlompeLOMPE began as a good idea on a “knitting night” in 2012. They both had children in preschool and grade school, and were wanting patterns for hats that fit well that were also nice to look at. It was especially hard to find finished goods and knitting patterns for boys. Thus, Kjekkaslua came into existence, which would ultimately prove to be their trademark, eventually becoming a whole little collection.

Their goal is to design great knitting patterns for children and adults, patterns for garments that fit well, are nice to wear and can be worn for a long time.
The books contains knitting patterns for boys and girls from ages one to six, but also for infants and adults. Many of the patterns are designed for both baby and mom. Find your favorites and combine colors that go well together.

The KLOMPELOMPE-series have reached a total print run of 230 000 copies (divided on four titles).
