30 timeless, endlessly wearable garments and accessories, including the best of Rauma's pattern archives.


Bring joy, color, and style into your life with this exceptional collection! Celebrated designer Bente Presterud took a deep dive into the comprehensive pattern archives of Rauma Garn, a respected Norwegian yarn company founded in 1927; she chose dozens of her best finds to form this curated compilation. Featuring fashionable, comfortable, visually striking garments and accessories of all shapes and sizes, this selection of the best of Rauma's decades-deep treasure trove is creative inspiration no knitter should be without.

Because the knitting tradition and history are so rich in Norway, the major yarn companies have major archives of knitting patterns. Bente Presterud has put together 30 designs including 5 gems from the rich and colorful Rauma yarn collection to be reworked for modern tastes.

  • Jackets, sweaters, slippers, shawls, scarves, mittens, socks, and more, for women and men
  • Patterns including textures, cabling, and traditional Norwegian designs—in fresh, fun color combinations
  • Step-by-step instructions and full-color photographs, plus historical images reproduced from the archives of Rauma Garn

Since 2008 Bente Presterud has run her company Bente Presterud Design, which is located in Nannestad, north of Akershus. She designs knitting and crochet patterns and is also a needlework consultant.  She currently resides in Nannestad, Norway. Bente Presterud is also one of the designers in Knit Like a Norwegian publishing in May 2021.
