Veera Välimäki lives and designs in southern Finland. She loves simple yet modern knits that are easy to wear year after year. Veera is a master of casting on for new sweaters, and she adores garter stitch and all kinds of short rows. Her first book, Lankaleikki, was published in 2013 in Finland and the second, Huivileikki, came out in the fall of 2014, but the majority of Veera’s work is self-published. Her work has also been featured in magazines and books in Finland, Europe, and in the United States.
