The latest big, beautiful volume from Isager is a collection of stunning knitting patterns, a history of Danish knitwear designer Ase Lund Jensen — who founded the company and left it to Marianne Isager in 1977 — and a book about knitting itself, including a section on the history of political knitting. Written by Marianne Isager, it contains 15 beautifully photographed patterns designed by ALJ, Marianne Isager, her daughter Helga Isager (of The Artisan, etc) and one-time employee Annette Danielsen, featuring colorwork, lace, texture, cables and entrelac. All of the patterns are inspired by Jensen’s work, and they range from sweaters to accessories to home goods. With beautiful charts, vintage photos, lovely illustrations and more, it’s an amazing pattern collection as well as a book to sit down with, read and pore over.
