Wilderness Knits for the Home is Linka Neumann’s second book, showcasing a stunning collection of homeware knits to make while embracing the Scandinavian spirit and cosying up next to a warm fire.

After the success of Wilderness Knits, with its cosy jumpers and cardigans set against the backdrop of the Norwegian landscape, Linka brings us gorgeous wall hangings, cushions, blankets (including for your dog!) and more. Once again, set in the stunning Norwegian countryside, the book inspires you to knit these beautiful creations and embrace the aesthetic of the Scandinavian wilderness.

As ever, Linka uses her environment to inspire her as well as animals from the snowy north – with dogs, orcas, polar bears and reindeers finding their way into her designs. If making jumpers and cardigans with Scandi-style yokes feels too complicated for you, these simpler shapes of squares and rectangles will give you the confidence to make your own creations with similar designs. Including 27 projects – all with knitting diagrams and inspirational photography – you will be knitting presents for all your friends and family as well as for your own home in no time.


Linka Neumann is a Norwegian knitwear designer and outdoor enthusiast. Knitting has always been a big part of her family, but it was only when she moved to the mountain village of Røros that she felt inspired to pick up the knitting needles herself. The wilderness and the animals living in it are her greatest sources of inspiration, and the garments she designs are made to withstand Norway’s harsh winters and fresh summers. She lives with her husband and two dogs outside Oslo.
