Knitting from the Netherlands, by Henriette van der Klift-Tellegen (Lark Books, 1986). This book takes a similar approach to Thompson, Pearson, Compton et al, and covers the ganseys of Dutch fishermen region by region. Full of old photographs and pattern charts, like its British counterparts it’s a social history and knitting pattern book combined. The patterns are subtly different from the ones we’re used to this side of the Channel, and the book is a fascinating addition to the standard reference works.

I was lucky to get one of the less expensive used copies of this treasure before the prices went up. This is a treasury of Aran-style patterns that I have not seen before. The vintage pictures are intriguing, the charts are clear and the narrative is informative and interesting. All the information is here to make an authentic vintage sweater that will be fun to make and give pleasure to anyone who wears it. If I counted right there are about 20 patterns here and almost infinite variations. At about $5 a pop per pattern via internet, the $40-$50 being asked for the book is pretty cheap per pattern.

This is so interesting as an addition to my research and information about the history and origins of these special sweaters and the people who created them, plus the knitting methods used to knit speedily for rapid production. In spite of the invention of the knitting machine by some stupid man who didn't appreciate the special value of a handmade sweater!

Although we live in New Zealand I have married into a Dutch family. I kept borrowing this book from our local library and was lucky enough to spot it when it was put in a withdrawn library books sale. I couldn't believe my luck!

This is not a fancy book, which adds to it's charm as the jumpers were designed to be practical and solid and warm. The history and photos alongside the patterns, and the instructions which make it possible to create a jumper all of your own makes this one of my favourite knitting books to leaf through.

I also particularly like the way the patterns are placed in their geographical settings. I eventually plan to design and knit my children jumpers out of this book, when they are a little bigger so they don't grow straight out of them. While the tiny place their Oma grew up in is not in the book there are enough hints at the styles for that area to make me feel confident I can do something that is representative of that location.

It is an absolute gem of a book.

While many knitters associate fisherman sweaters with the Aran Isles and Guernsey (one of the Channel Isles), the knitters of the Netherlands make similar sweaters to Guernseys in many wonderful patterns based solely on knit and purl, with occasional cables and lace (yarn-over) designs.

The basic structure of the Dutch fisherman's sweater is a patterned or textured yoke with a plain knit body. The structure is a tube with drop shoulder sleeves, similar to Norwegian sweaters. Color is not used, instead, indigo dye or natural wool is used.

The sweaters bear a strong resemblence to British sweaters, due to a strong trade route between the Dutch and British trading Dutch cured herring for sweaters in the Shetlands. Since the Shetland knitters came from Norway originally, this accounts for the similar construction.

This book has many stitch patterns, the method to construct an authentic fisherman's sweater the Dutch way, and many photos of Dutch fishermen and children wearing the garments in vintage photos as well. A rare book, well worth adding to any serious knitter's library.
