Wilderness Knits

By Linka Neumann

23 knitting patterns for jumpers and cardigans to last a lifetime

Combining her love for the outdoors and knitting, Linka Neumann presents patterns for Scandi-style jumpers, cardigans and a headband that will keep you warm and dry, no matter how rough the weather is.

Drawing on traditional Norwegian knitting methods, these designs for thick, woolly knits are not only comfortable and cosy, but also represent an authenticity and style that has stood the test of time. Linka takes inspiration from nature and wildlife for her fresh yet timeless designs. From the Norwegian forests, snow-covered landscapes and fjords to reindeer, wolves and her beloved Husky dogs.

Many of the designs come with variations to suit all tastes, whether you prefer a jumper or a cardigan, a thick or thin garment, sewn-on arms or round yokes. The patterns include instructions for a range of sizes and for both female and male body shapes. There is also a pattern for making Linka’s signature Wilderness Sweater in children’s size.

The projects are showcased in a stunning Norwegian landscape that will make you yearn for the outdoors. And no matter how long or short your adventure, you will be cosy in your bespoke, home-knitted jumper. These knits chime with an eco-conscious, anti-fast fashion sentiment and will literally last you a lifetime of adventuring!

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 and shares her designs and outdoor adventures on Instagram @linka.neumann.
