The Swedish Bohus design workshop founded by Emma Jacobsson is best known for its beautiful hand-knitted items made famous in the late 1930s through the ‘60s for their attention to detail, innovative design and color, and exacting standards of craftsmanship. Traditional Bohus patterns utilized a fine-weight angora and wool blend to create a gorgeous halo and tonal gradations of color. The addition of purl stitches and the sometimes 3rd—or 4th or 5th—color per row opened up limitless design possibilities for the knitter. In this class we will learn a bit about the history of Bohus knitting, as well as the technique used to create its masterful effects.
