We couldn't be more excited for Aleks Byrd's much anticipated book Traditions Revisited: Modern Estonian Knits.
This book is something special. Drawing on her Estonian heritage Aleks introduces us to the beautiful world of Estonian knitting through modern designs that show off techniques such as Roosimine and Estonian Braids. This book is indeed a love lettering to both her heritage and knitting itself.
For a small country on the Baltic Sea, Estonia’s tradition and love for handicraft greatly surpasses its size. Estonian knitting is all about techniques, embellishment and regionality. Each knit tells a story about the knitter and where they live.
With 216 pages featured 19 beautifully crafted designs and hand drawn illustrations (by Aleks herself) guiding readers through various techniques anyone can see the labour of love that went into making this book.
Whether you're looking to try out some new techniques or on the search for that special something for that knitting friend or family Traditions Revisited will not disappoint.
