Birger Berge
Modern Traditional Knitwear

Modern Traditional Knitwear offers more than just elegant and varied knitwear for men and women, it is also a journey through the author's great passion for traditional patterns, craftsmanship, and interplaying colors.

You'll find patterns for sweaters, cardigans, scarves, hats and mittens – fashionable and practical garments. Not only that, but knits for the home are included here too; nice pot-holders that can be used at home or at the cabin, water-bottle cozies that you can keep in your rucksack. You can also give old bottles a new life by knitting them a cover decorated with flowers. Nostalgic and adventurous knitters can try making a bow-tie, and a matching belt for a nice party dress.
