Honsestrikk, which loosely translates as 'chicken stitch' was influenced by the radical social and political movements of the time, including the women's rights movement, and this can be seen in the personal and political messages of the some of the pattern designs: instead of the more traditional fair isle colourwork techniques, Honsestrikk knitting featured political messages and motifs, colours clashed and borders butted up against each other in a riot of colour and pattern.
Honsestrikk is about knitting in a freer style so you have the freedom to express yourself and create truly unique, personalized garments and accessories. Designer Anna Bauer has been inspired by the Honsestrikk movement to this collection of basic designs and patterns so you can choose your own combinations and create and knit your own free, radical knits.
Anna Bauer is a textile artist with a Masters in textile art from Högskolan for Design and Arts and Crafts in Göteborg. Aside from knitting Anna also incorporates embroidery, print and costume into her artwork and textile designs
