Lotta H. Löthgren
Observations: Knits and Essays from the Forest is a knitted walk through the forest and the seasons. With a keen eye for the innate wonders of the natural world, Lotta H. Löthgren combines knitwear designs with notes of 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,” Lotta says.

"One of the things I keep learning from living close to nature is that the most important messages often come in whispers. When you spend some time every day walking through the same patch of land over and over, you soon start noticing that it is constantly changing, just very slowly."
