Observations: Knits and Essays from the Forest is a knitted walk through the forest and the seasons. With a keen eye for the innate wonders of the natural world, Lotta H Löthgren combines knitwear designs with notes of the landscape she calls home: a small village in the southeast of Sweden, nestled among forests and lakes. There, she spends her days writing, knitting, designing knitwear and hand-dyeing yarn. This book, Lotta’s debut, is a beautiful combination of knitwear patterns and essays, inspired by the land she inhabits.

Observations includes nine knitwear patterns for long-lasting, wearable garments and accessories, along with essays about living a life close to nature. The patterns have been created in a quiet conversation with the land, drawing elements from the natural world and translating them into stitches and fabric.

“This book is the meeting between myself and my homeplace, seen from a very human perspective but told alongside the low hum of the soil,” Lotta says.
