I speak Swedish, English, German, Italian, Icelandic and Chinese (Mandarin). Patterns that I publish here on Ravelry are generally in English, but a bit of Swedish and Icelandic may show up.
What I do: I have made a few designs in knitting, but since 2008, I’m mainly working in Tunisian crochet, and have invented some own techniques to work Tunisian crochet in the round, in colours, in lace patterns, and so on. I like designing clothes with unusual details or features, and particularly like garments that can be worn in more than one way.
Book #1: In June 2010 I published the book “Tunisian crochet in Icelandic” with 20 patterns (plus variations) for men, women and children. These patterns are only available in Icelandic (with Swedish translation on the side). I don’t have the copyright to the book, so I cannot offer any translations.
Book #2: In October 2011 I published the book “Tunisian crochet for leisure and pleasure” with 30 new patterns (plus variations). It contains new and improved technique, some new stitches, several new sweaters in both lighter and thicker wool, a number of elegant and light shawls and scarves, some rather unusual patters clearly inspired by scifi, fantasy and fairytales, some items for the very smallest children, as well as a cocktail dress. Sizes range from 2-14 years and XS-4X. English translations of all patterns and some of the instructions are available in the Ravelry shop.
Publishing on Ravelry: All patterns from book #2 are available in English. A growing number of freestanding and new patterns are also available.
