ESTONIAN KNITTING 1.TRADITIONS AND TECHNIQUES

For centuries, every girl and woman living in the small territory of Estonia on the shores of the Baltic Sea has known how to knit.
Museum collections have preserved thousands of wonderful mittens, gloves, socks, stockings, caps, jumpers, cardigans and more. Many of these items were made for more than just keeping warm, their functions were also to protect and adorn the wearer as well as to showcase the maker’s care and skill.

Estonian knitting is worthy of exploring in every respect, whether it be choosing the appropriate palette or pattern, or using authentic techniques.
