Observations: Knits and Essays from the Forest is a knitted walk through the seasons. With a keen eye for the innate wonders of the natural world, Lotta Löthgren combines knitwear designs with notes on the landscape she calls home: a small village in the southeast of Sweden, nestled among forests and lakes. There, she spends her days writing, knitting, designing knitwear, and hand-dyeing yarn.
Observations includes nine knitwear patterns for long-lasting, wearable garments and accessories, along with essays about living a life close to nature. The patterns have been created in a quiet conversation with the land, drawing elements from the natural world and translating them into stitches and fabric.
