Back Cover Text:
The City(e)scapes Collection may sound like an ambiguous title, but there is nothing ambiguous about the designs. They share the elegance, wearability, attention to detail and careful choice of yarns to match the character of the designs with all the other Designer’s Choice collections. The main difference is that the garments in general are more urban in character, and the title also expresses the mixed emotions designer Elsebeth Lavold has towards big cities.
   The front cover design Pretoria is a good example of a design that features the kind of details that Elsebeth herself feels provide an urban touch to the collection: a beautiful cabled knot, a dramatic slit in the front, and a detached collar. Baghdad, on the back cover, is more straight-forward, but not less dramatic with its vivid colors and vertical stripe pattern.
   The books also includes Amsterdam, a sweater in men’s/children’s/dog’s (!) sizes, Lyon, a gorgeous shawl with a unique lace pattern, and Oslo, a wrap cardigan with a spectacular collar, to name a few. The City(e)scapes Collection is the most extensive Designer’s Choice book to date (80 pages), likely to inspire both big city and countryside knitters to reach for their needles.
