Tradition and a love for handicraft abound in the small Baltic Sea country of Estonia.
Estonian knitting is a mixture of techniques, embellishment and regionality. Aleks Byrd's book, Traditions Revisited: Modern Estonian Knits, is an introduction to Estonian knitting, between tradition and modernity.
Aleks Byrd, whose roots are Estonian, Canadian and North American, is a knitwear designer living in Bath, UK. She also works as an illustrator and teaches Estonian knitting techniques around the world. In her designs, Estonian tradition meets Aleks Byrd's own graphic world.
With this book, Aleks Byrd wants to make Estonian knitting known and accessible to as many people as possible.
