A sea of stitches - knitting book by the Danish designers, Gitte Verner Jensen and Lotte Rahbek. The book is inspired by patterns and designs from the shirts that sailors and fishermen wore, when there were real sailors, windswept fishermen and fishermen's wives with red rough hands. The book contains recipes that are, among other things, inspired by historical photos from the archive in the Maritime Museum in Helsingør.
The book contains recipes for stylish sweaters, hats and other accessories for adults and children of all genders and ages. The recipes use colors that again refer to history and the sea, but the reader can of course use his own colors. All designs are made so that you can build on them yourself.
The recipes are easy to follow and suitable for both beginners and experts. The models are designed to be gender- and age-neutral, so that the sailor's knitwear can be used by the whole family.
The book's photos were taken by photographer Sibel Rønstrup.
