In English in July

Preorderring is possible now on


Vivian Høxbro showcases Danish heritage from a proud chapter of knitting history. The 200 star motif patterns in the book have their origin in carefully preserved sweaters that were part of women’s traditional dress in the 1800s. These "night sweaters," as they were called, are a treasure chest of knitted damask patterns: beautiful, single-color relief designs in knit, purl, and crossed stitches, with stars as a particularly charming motif. The book includes 200 charted patterns to incorporate into your knitting; a history of "night sweaters" illustrated with little vignettes; illustrations of special knitting techniques; instructions for modern sweaters as well as shawls, a top, and a tunic; instructions for traditional sweaters worked in today’s measurements and colors. See, enjoy, and discover the wealth of traditional Danish pattern designs, and be inspired to knit your own beautiful classically-patterned sweaters.

My newest book is in Danish - I do hope though that an American or English puslisher will transtale and pinrt it. But so far it is in Danish only.

I have based the book on 87 - 200 years old knitted shirts that I have seen in museums in Denmark.

The book has a chapter on the Danish knitting history where some of the old knitted shirts are mentioned.
It has 200 patterns, and 
a technical chapter, and
instruction for 10 sweaters and 1 stole inspired by the old shirts.
