Viking Knits Summary

Viking Knits: Over 40 Scandi Knits for Men, Women & Children by Lasse L. Matberg

Learn to knit over 40 items for men, women and children with 'The Viking', social media star Lasse L. Matberg.

Lasse L. Matberg comes from a family who, for generations, have been working to create beautiful, quality crafted items by hand - fathers and grandfathers were craftsmen, and mothers and grandmothers often worked hard knitting warm garments for the whole family. Viking Knits is a tribute to good-quality, practical needlework, inspired by the Vikings' warm, all-weather garments.

From tough-wearing sweaters and outerwear to elegant cardigans and jackets, all have been made in a beautiful Scandinavian style. Whether you love traditional, Nordic colourwork patterns and cables, or modern, textured knits, there is something for everyone. Clear instructions are provided for each project, and charts are included where needed.

'I hope this book will inspire you to create something valuable with your hands,' says Lasse L. Matberg. 'Welcome to a knitting book with both tradition and versatility.'

Viking Knits Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This is not up for debate: bearded, golden-haired social media star Matberg looks amazing in a sweater. He shares his knack for creating hand-knitted, all-occasions attire in this attractively illustrated and informative new craft book. The how-to guide offers more than 30 patterns along with detailed instructions to create Scandi knits for men, women, and children, with the designs inspired by Matberg's Viking heritage. Sweaters are divided into categories-knits for the great outdoors, cozy accessories, stylish knitwear-and flagged according to level of difficulty, though aspiring knitters should pick up at least some experience before attempting any of these patterns.

Throughout the book, Matberg mostly models his own creations, clearly demonstrating why he has more than 700,000 followers on Instagram. It's not just his sun-kissed visage. The crisp, colorful photographs show Matberg and company engaged in outdoorsy activities like sitting on a sailboat, wandering dreamily through tall grasses, and nuzzling horses, clad in his appealing knitwear. Matberg's brief descriptions of each sweater are simple yet charming: this sweater is heartwarming in every sense, partly because the pattern looks like little hearts and partly because it's good and warm, he writes of his green, gorgeous Heart Sweater, an exemplar of masculine coziness.

Some garments will stand up to a day of rough outdoor exploration while others are more elegant, and some utilize traditional Nordic patterns while others have a more contemporary feel. Still, Matberg's overarching goal is creating versatile clothing that can be worn in tough and unpredictable climates, as he was born and raised in Norway. From a family of craftspeople-sheet metal workers, shipbuilders, and shoemakers, as well as avid knitters-Matberg celebrates and extends a heritage of creativity, with an online twinkle. This book offers intermediate and experienced knitters an inspiring guide to create eye-catching, durable knitwear that will never go out of style.

A Beautiful book with amazing pictures. I love how the book gets right to the point of the projects and not too much basic knit knowledge. If you buy this book, you know how to knit already and don't need that. Also the projects are beautiful and if you have the skill, you will definitely want to knit the item.
-- The Novel Neighbor Bookstore

Oh my gosh, what a beautiful, useful, well-built book! Patterns are all gorgeous and eye-catching with well written instructions and easy pattern charts for difficult or colorwork stitches. And everything looks like it feels amazing!! I can't wait to cast on my first sweater from this book.
-- Demi Marshall
