Nordic Knits with Birger Berge
Breathe new life into Norwegian tradition with one of Norway's hottest knit designers.
Birger Berge is a study in apparent contradictions: he's a trained historian, and also an Instagram star; a trend-setting contemporary knitter, but also deeply passionate about traditional patterns and their origins. Berge learned to knit as a child from his mother and grandmother, and for him handcrafts have become a source of comfort and creative energy, and a well of endless inspiration. Now, he combines his own distinctly modern style, a love of contrasts and dynamic color combinations, and the classic beauty of Norwegian patterning in a collection of gorgeous knitwear designs freshly adapted for a non-Norwegian knitting audience.
Birger Berge’s patterns are largely only available in Norwegian, so we are delighted to be able to offer this collection of sweaters, scarves, hats, mittens, socks and home accessories now translated into English for the first time. Several of the patterns have been designed using yarn from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.
