Knitting Goes Medieval - the Collection

The Gallery displays select designs from the Knitting goes Medieval pattern collection, together with some of the church murals that have inspired the designer. The paintings, dating from 1450 to the early sixteenth century, embellish and adorn the walls and vaults of churches in the Swedish province of Uppland.

The absence of signatures on the murals makes it difficult to identify the medieval artists but several of the images presented here are attributed to the famous painter and embroiderer Albertus Pictor and his workshop.

Patterns for most of the designs are to be published in a book, but some of them will be available for purchase as downloadable PDF files here on the website.
