1 Oct 1999
Nancy Bush spent several months in Estonia talking with knitters and unearthing the fascinating history of the craft and the country. In addition to the rich cultural history, Nancy shares traditions and techniques that are unique to the knitting from this region. Clearly illustrated step-by-step instruction for techniques that will be new to most American knitters insure success. Included are charts for traditional lace and multicolored patterns typical of Estonian knitting. Instructions for twenty-five gloves, mittens, and socks, both historic and contemporary, that use these traditional patterns, round out this extraordinary work.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new knitters' bible 12 May 2009
By JRR
Format:Paperback
The patterns and explanations in this book are, as one would expect from Nancy Bush, excellent and inspiring. The book is a good mixture of actual patterns and the history of knitting in Estonia, with good photographs. the patterns are all for socks and gloves, which are lovely small projects on which to try out the various different techniques described. I have used it a lot and thoroughly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars good knitting book 14 April 2011
By mkk
Format:Paperback
This book has some really nice patterns, but the bit I found most useful was the techniques section, which has some interesting methods for decorative cast ons I hadn't seen before, and were very well explained.

5.0 out of 5 stars A treat to read and to keep 15 Jun 2012

Most interesting - not only because of the knitting but also because of the cultural insights. It's a real pleasure to 'dip into' this book. Lovely illustrations.

4.0 out of 5 stars FINE knitting 21 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Just about all the patterns are worked on 2.25mm needles - this is something you need to be aware of, I think.

patterns are very traditional, as you would expect. Author has tried to provide authentic patterns, or stay within the Estonian knitting tradition.

Good opportunities to try new techniques are provided, with instruction.

Too many mitten patterns for my taste - I would convert these into glove patterns, or reduce their number, to replace them with more sock patterns - or how about a little hat or cap?

It really is just socks, mitts and gloves, nothing else.
