From Estonian knitting authority Nancy Bush comes this new classic. Knitters will deepen their knowledge of knitting in Estonia, home to some of the oldest knitted artifacts in northern Europe-particularly mittens, gloves, and socks-where the craft has played a major role in customs and traditions for hundreds of years.Learn about traditional lace-knitting techniques, including the traditional starburst, twig, peacock, and lily of the valley patterns and their variations; different ways to make the distinctive nupp, or subdued bobble; as well as modern adaptations of the classic ways of constructing shawls and scarves and adding lace edges.Technique chapters will include information about traditional Estonian lace knitting as well as modern adaptations of the classic ways of constructing shawls and scarves and adding lace edges.Photographs from several Estonian museums and from the author's own collection of modern knitted shawls are used as source material for patterns and construction techniques.
