Learn this colorful and rich Nordic handicraft dating back to the days of the Vikings from someone who has done it all of her life. With easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions, you will be guided through all the steps you need not only to get started, but to the completion of the rya rug YOU design. Your ya wall-hanging, rug, or pillow will be considered a family heirloom for generations. Melinda Purcell Byrd has demystified the art to make it easy for anyone who chooses to make it their own. She offers both left-brained and right brained approaches to designing as well as calculating how much yarn you will need for your projects.
She will teach you—as her grandparents taught her—how to “paint with a needle.” Learn the process from Melinda Purcell Byrd as though she were looking over your shoulder and pointing the way to the next step. No loom or special equipment is required. The book is designed and generously illustrated with 500 helpful and beautiful photographs by Ken Koons.
