This book includes 18 knitting patterns - sweaters, cardigans and accessories - inspired by the Kalevala.
Considered a national epic in Finland, Kalevala contains old poems full of Baltic-Finnish mythology, ancient symbols, mythical creatures and nature. These and other Finnish, Scandinavian and Baltic influences can be seen in the decorative color patterns of the designs. They are also a wonderful alternative to the popular Icelandic sweaters.

All patterns are knitted in one piece and the color work only uses two colors at a time, making them accessible to all levels of knitters. The patterns use a variety of lighter and heavier yarns and include several suitable yarn options.

Jenna Kostet is a writer and knitwear designer known for her enchanting patterns, as well as an author who has published numerous historical novels and children's books in Finland.

18 knitting patterns (12 sweaters, 2 cardigans, 2 socks, 1 pair of mittens and 1 hat)
