The garments are designed for children aged 3 to 9 years, with styles ranging from beautifully subtle and textured knits to patterned creations with motifs inspired by classic Nordic knitwear and the Scandinavian landscape.

There are numerous photos of the finished designs, clear written instructions, and every knitted item with colourwork includes a chart with corresponding written instructions.
