This book has (as the title says!) 150 Scandinavian knitting motifs. They are all stranded knitting. The book is similar to their one about Fair Isle patterns, but differs because the Scandinavians used more picture motifs than other areas. So the book has geometrical patterns, but also a lot of pictures of birds, trees, people, etc.

Definitely recommended if you are interested in stranded knitting and especially if you are considering modifying or making your own pattern
