The Close Knit Gang


'Bright Young Things' and 'The Close Knit Gang' by MillaMia

Two Swedish sisters living in London started MillaMia in 2009 and already published two very nice knitting books. Both books are a true reflection of their Swedish heritage. What makes these knitting books special for me are the bright colour combinations used for traditional designs, like a scarf, a cardigan or a baby blanket. The patterns are not difficult at all and so you as a beginner will have no trouble creating one of the pieces. Both books really give a new look and idea on knitted-clothes for children!

    These are absolutely gorgeous. Thanks for the post.

    I’ve ordered one of the books from the Millamia website. Hopefully my mum will be happy to dust off her knitting needles and make something for the kids
