by Jenna Kostet
What does knitted folk poetry look like? How can a sweater be both a garment and a story? Jenna Kostet has created a collection of 18 knitting patterns--sweaters, cardigans, and accessories--inspired by Kalevala, a Finnish national epic full of mythology, ancient symbols, mythical creatures, and nature. Many of the designs here feature a fresh take on colorwork that brings in Finnish, Scandinavian, and Baltic influences, and all are knitted in one piece and employ only two colors at the same time, making them accessible to both the experienced and the curious.
Inspired by stories and folklore, Jenna Kostet's work emphasizes the embrace of tradition and the joy of creativity. You are sure to find something beautiful in these pages, something that speaks to you!
