You may be familiar with Estonian knitting, but the traditions of Lithuania are less widely known. So Donna Druchunas and June Hall have shared their passion for Lithuania’s knitting heritage with their brand-new book. Containing more than 25 patterns for mittens, gloves and socks, in Lithuanian Knitting: Continuing Traditions you can explore its vibrant colourwork.
The book offers an in-depth exploration of Lithuania’s knitting history and folk art traditions, personal stories, a look at the modern-day knitting scene, and step-by-step instructions for special techniques including Lithuanian sock heels, Baltic braids, fringe edges and more.
