Norse Goddess is a collection of knitting designs made for Judith Bech’s gorgeous wedding dress in felted wool and for the big events in life. The wedding dress Swan Lake, with feathers and train, worn by model Alexandria Eissinger, with Saqqara Shawl and loose sleeves, was a vision to behold hence on the cover. The knitting patterns themselves are inspired by Norse traditions, while the silhouettes are contemporary. A neutral color tone was chosen for all the designs so that the texture and the lines in each one became the focal point.
