This exceptionally beautiful book begins with Estonian knitting (and nålbinding) history and shows museum items from the 18th and 19th centuries: leg warmers, stockings, mittens & gloves, jackets & jumpers, underwear, caps, shawls & scarves. Tools & Materials is the next chapter, providing color palettes used by eleven Estonian districts. Techniques offers an extensive verbal and visual treatise on over 20 subjects. The numerous varieties of twisted-braids alone may stagger you, along with color pattern charts, photos and charts for scores of texture patterns; increases and decreases, eyelets and travelling stitches, brioche and lace, slip stitch and entrelac, short rows and fringes, cables and nupps! Everything... And it is in English. Hardcover. 300pp.
