Icelandic color knitting : rose-pattern

This is a review of the history of traditional rose-pattern insert knitting in Iceland and the methods used in making shoe shoe inserts. Inserts or rose-pattern inserts are knitted insoles that were worn in soft shoes made of fishskin or sheepskin for comfort and decoration.

The book preserves old, uniquely Icelandic knowledge that has almost been lost and suggests ways in which to use these techniques in contemporary design. The work is based on a professional study of a handiwork heritage, which the author interprets with great respect and develops in refreshingly innovative ways.
