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. Aleks Byrd's book Traditions Revisited – Modern Estonian Knits is an introduction to Estonian knitting, both traditional and tradition-inspired. It includes 19 patterns — from mittens to sweaters — that blend seamlessly with modern knitting styles.

Aleks Byrd — whose roots are in Estonia, Canada, and the US — is a knitwear designer based in Bath, UK. In addition to knitwear design, she works as an illustrator and teaches Estonian knitting techniques around the world. In her designs, tradition and Aleks’s own graphic style meet. With her book, Aleks seeks to make traditional Estonian techniques accessible to everyone. At the same time she hopes to build a bridge between Estonian knitters and the international knitting community.

The book includes:

• 19 knitting patterns (cardigan, dress, vest, shawl, cowl, hat, socks, fingerless mitts, mittens, and ten sweaters)
• Detailed, illustrated tutorials for for traditional Estonian knitting technique
• Both charts and written instructions

Hardcover, 216 pages
