Traditions Revisited – Modern Estonian Knits
You’ve seen her amazing designs previously on the pages of Laine, like the Seli sweater on Laine 10, but now we have some amazing news. Aleks Byrd’s book Traditions Revisited: Modern Estonian Knits will be released on May 20th via Laine Publishing. This long-awaited publication is an introduction to Estonian knitting, a culture rich in techniques, distinguished embellishment and regional variations.
Aleks – whose roots are in Estonia, Canada and the USA – wants to make traditional Estonian techniques accessible to everyone and build a bridge between Estonian knitters and the international knitting community — work that is valuable on its own.
The book includes 19 patterns, ranging from mittens to sweaters, that blend seamlessly with modern knitting styles. Head to our Instagram to catch some previews from the book!
