Nordic Knits with Birger Berge:
Traditional Patterns, Exciting New Looks
Breathe new life into Norwegian tradition with one of Norway's hottest knit designers.
Birger Berge is a study in apparent contradictions: he's a trained historian … and an Instagram star—a trend-setting contemporary knitter … who's deeply passionate about traditional patterns and their origins. Berge learned to knit as a child from his mother and grandmother, and for him handcrafts have become a source of comfort and creative energy, and a well of endless inspiration. Now, he combines his own distinctly modern style, a love of contrasts and dynamic color combinations, and the classic beauty of Norwegian patterning in a collection of gorgeous knitwear designs freshly adapted for an American knitting audience.
